Heritage Quest

The Heritage Quest project is a citizen science project in which volunteers participate in archaeological research.

Quentin Bourgeois


This project allows everyone who is interested to help archaeologists with scientific research. On new high-resolution LiDAR maps archaeological structures are visible that until now were hidden by vegetation. Participants help inspect these maps and help validating of the discovered structures in the field. In this way citizen scientists help discover and thereby protect archaeological heritage.

Discover the aims and methodology of the project, the sub-projects and how to participate yourself on the website of Heritage Quest.
