Project Title 

What lies beneath? High resolution imaging of lichen-covered surfaces at Stonehenge

Background & Summary of Project

Prehistoric stone carvings on Stonehenge are a window into the lives of our ancestors. However, archaeologists who have surveyed the monument suspect that lichen, which covers at least 23% of the monument is obscuring an additional bounty of such carvings. Attempts to see below the lichen using surface scanning techniques have yet to be successful.
