About Us

The project is jointly run by Archaeoptics Ltd and Wessex Archaeology. It was begun to test how well a laser scanner could record some of the known rock art at Stonehenge during the summer of 2002, rather than a commissioned project. Due to the interesting nature of the archaeology, the team have continued to study the data, much of it in their spare time.

Some larger scale scans were also undertaken with a Riegl 360 3D scanner courtesy of Dr Graham Hunter of 3D Laser Mapping.
