Prehistoric landscape - explored with a kite

edited July 22 in General
More amateur kite aerial archaeology :-)

We visited a fascinating archaeological site in southwestern Slovenia - with our kites and cameras, of course - to see if anything else hides among and beneath an artificial landscape, full of cairns and ancient walls and barrows and mounds, created thousands and thousands of years ago, in Eneolithic and early Bronze Age ...

And maybe it does! Check the full report on our KAP website, and here are some kite aerial photos and images from a most interesting KAP session ...

Thanks for watching! ;-)
