The School of Archeology at Oxford University has set up a five year project to use aerial maps and databases of archeological artefacts from all over England to produce an online accessible resource about the history of the landscape of England. Details are here.

The English landscapes and identities project will go online in 2014 and cover the period 3500 BCE to Domesday 1086.

We shall, for example, be able to study continuities and changes in Cornwall’s landscape and access a mass of archeological information about the county. It will be an incredible resource.
