During the last week the Royal Commission has been inundated with media enquiries regarding recent discoveries during this unprecedented heatwave. Our aerial photographer Dr Toby Driver has spent many hours in the air recording these ancient and forgotten monuments in the Welsh landscape, helping to build upon our understanding of the historic landscape of Wales. The results which will take many months to analyse will be added to our database Coflein.

Cropmarks throughout Wales have been documented and recorded by the Royal Commission for decades, all these can now be viewed via an interactive map on Coflein. This year’s results will be added over the coming months, building a record for archaeologists, historians, researchers and the general public to explore online.
