Abstract

An essential aspect of archaeology is the protection of sites from looters, extensive agriculture and erosion. Under this constant threat of destruction, it is of utmost importance that sites are located so that they can be monitored and protected. This is mostly done on the ground or by using remote sensing data such as aerial images or LiDAR derived elevation models. This task is time consuming and requires highly specialised and experienced people and would thus immensely benefit from automation. Within this novel research, the potential of deep learning for the detection of archaeological sites is being assessed.
