Description

The survey was undertaken at the request of the Exmoor National Park archaeologist in order to locate the new lithic monuments to the National Grid and define their extent and nature. It was undertaken using Trimble 4700 series differential GPS equipment and the data was post-processed using Trimble’s TGO GPS processing software. The survey data was located to the National Grid using the Ordnance Survey’s active station network and the OSTN02 transformation within the TGO software. The survey was undertaken by staff from the EH Exeter Archaeological Survey and Investigation Team with the help of two students from the MA in Landscape Archaeology programme at the University of Bristol, Heather Smith and Jane Wilson. The fieldwork was carried out in May 2007. [1]
