Developing technology to enhance archaeological discoveries accessible by everyone

DigVentures‘ ‘Deep Time‘ is an experimental platform uniting citizen scientists, archaeologists, land custodians, and heritage bodies to detect previously unknown archaeological sites on a massive scale.

By harnessing the curiosity of thousands of people and connecting them with available sources of archaeological Big Data – including LiDAR, Artificial Intelligence, satellite imagery, and the UK’s Historic Environment Record – Deep Time enables the rapid identification of areas where archaeology is present, and in so doing, points a way forward to helping make smart decisions about its future in the face of escalating climate change and human interventions.

Deep Time also has a clear social purpose; beyond detecting archaeological sites with increasing speed and accuracy, the platform empowers public participation and fascination, unearthing the real value of connecting people and place, past and future.
