Landscape Surveying using Handheld GPS Receivers By Stephen Eastmead
Paperback: $36.15
Ships in 3-5 business days
When the Swaledale and Arkengarthdale Archaeology Group (SWAAG) was formed one of the key requirements was to perform accurate landscape surveys that could be mapped to a sufficient standard for... More > publication in archaeological reports and journals. An Internet survey of available GPS systems - GPS receivers and mapping software - only returned professional systems that were beyond the financial reach of a small amateur group like SWAAG. This treatise is a simple manual describing the methodologies developed, which can be used by individuals or groups to record and publish their data. The aim is not to be prescriptive but to offer a base for others to adapt and modify, so their surveying requirements can be met at minimal financial cost. Whilst the examples described are archaeological, the techniques can be directly applied to any landscape feature in any area of interest. The methods described are broken down into individual easy to follow steps, and richly illustrated with colour diagrams.< Less
Hungry Chert Quarries By Stephen Eastmead

The Yorkshire Dales is well known for its historic links with the lead mining industry particularly during the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries, but other metals like silver, zinc and copper have... More > been extracted in smaller quantities. Aggregates like limestone and sandstone are still being quarried. Chert was quarried in Swaledale and the adjacent Arkengarthdale from c.1901 to c.1950 when the market for chert suddenly collapsed. Up to 1922 the principal chert quarrying was at Fremington Edge quarry situated above Reeth in Swaledale, but in 1922 a second chert quarry started in Arkengarthdale on Mouldside. Whilst walking Mouldside for many years and having read the available accounts, there appeared to be some aspects that did not quite fit or had not been described. Unfortunately we can no longer ask the men who must have toiled long and arduous hours here, but I hope this short report (more a pictorial record) will add an extra layer to what we know, or at least stimulate further discussion.< Less

The Swaledale and Arkengarthdale Archaeology Group (SWAAG) was formed in the summer of 2009. Later in that year SWAAG started recording the archaeological landscape of Hagg Farm, Fremington, led by... More > SWAAG’s President Tim Laurie FSA, the leading expert on the prehistoric landscapes of the area. The survey identified a series of possible settlement platforms across the fields of Hagg Farm. This is an interim report of the October 14th – 18th 2013 excavation. The main objective of this excavation was to clarify a series of outstanding questions relating to site 103 as a result of the preceding excavations. This required a series of trenches across both site 103 and the neighbouring site 102. This block of work will continue to completion in the spring of 2014, after which this interim report will be updated once all the finds and samples from the 2013/14 excavations have been processed.< Less

More > man extracting ores and rocks over the last two millennia, using the records saved on the SWAAG database. In essence we are showing you what is there when you drive or walk in and around Swaledale which usually goes unnoticed or at least unappreciated by most visitors. If you are visiting the area it will give you a pictorial taste of what you can go and see, as most records have the Ordinance Survey map co-ordinates so that you can easily find them. The images also give you a view of the many landscapes present in the dales as well as many images you won’t see that are under the dales! Each record has been saved onto Swaledale and Arkengarthdale Archaeology Group’s database by its members. Each record usually contains both text and up to 30 images. Many records are on public access land or footpaths.< Less
