Prehistoric burial mounds found in Forest
AMAZING archaeological discoveries have been made in the New Forest.
Prehistoric burial mounds, a World War II practice bombing range and searchlight position have all been found between Burley and Godshill.
Airborne light detecting and ranging (lidar) has revealed the archaeological gems using lasers.
Archaeological researcher Tom Dommett said: “One of lidar’s greatest benefits in the Forest is its ability to penetrate all but the densest vegetation like conifer or holly.
