The Foresters’ Forest - Ongoing Project

The Foresters’ Forest is a Heritage Lottery Funded Landscape Partnership programme to raise awareness and participation in the built, natural and cultural heritage of the Forest of Dean through individual projects using volunteers from local communities. One of the projects initiated, ‘Unearthing our Heritage’, seeks to better understand the archaeology of the Forest. DAG has been very active with this project and will continue to be so as the Partnership programme moves forward. This winter we are again participating in the annual Lidar (Light Detection and Ranging) validation survey, investigating and recording archaeological features identified by survey aircraft using Lidar equipment.
