A Himalayan Adventure

6th March, 2013

LandScope employee James Kilroy is shortly setting out to Nepal as part of a small group of archaeologists.  The Himalayan Exploration and Archaeological Research  Team (HEART) will be surveying mountain plateaus and entering man-made cave systems along the Annapurna circuit and the Mustang region of Nepal.  It is hoped that research will help shed light on one of the earliest spice trade routes in the world as well as place Nepalese prehistory into its wider context.  Supported by LandScope equipment and funding, James will be responsible for mapping these high altitude sites and placing surface scatters into a coordinate frame.
