Ancient site hope after airborne scanner used in Surrey

LiDAR has revealed a possible Iron Age hill fort (circled in blue) on a promontory of Black Down

A new form of airborne laser scanning used in an archaeological survey near Haslemere may have revealed an ancient hill fort and burial mound.
The scanner, known as LiDAR, uses infra-red laser to see beneath trees and map inaccessible landscapes.
The survey, carried out by the National Trust at Black Down, has found evidence that people may have lived there from 10,000 years ago.
An exhibition about the findings opens on Wednesday.
