This is so cool. The UK's current heatwave is exposing the outline of ancient hill forts and settlements. Soil quality today is still affected by iron age construction, so the grass on top changes colour at a different pace in the sun. HT

It’s fascinating to see examples like this; as an aside if I may, Oliver Rackham credits the Luftwaffe for recording from the air a countryside that had remained fundamentally unchanged for hundreds of years pre-WWII.

Agree - so interesting. This is happening in the Chilterns; more educational pleas to protect the sites, & other (much newer) berms in Ashridge woods created by WWI soldiers digging 'practice trenches.' Far as I can tell, people are respecting those barriers.

It’s fascinating - it was how the Iron Age fort in Mellor, Cheshire (now extensively excavated) was discovered.

The old taxiways and dispersals of WWII airfields are becoming apparent too, even if the runways are still intact and operational. Many dispersal sites were a considerable distance from the airfields.

More recent history too, dried out grass on Hilly Fields in Lewisham exposes the foundations of temporary military buildings, dating from the wartime defence of the capital
