All about me...

Rebecca Bennett, PhD

I am an archaeologist specialising in aerial and ground-based landscape studies and GIS. Specifically I am interested in the application of airborne remote sensing prospection techniques; airborne laser scanning (lidar), multi and hyper-spectral imaging for archaeological prospection. You can out more about my research interests and publications over on my sister website www.pushingthesensors.com

I have lots of experience in managing heritage data, especially geospatial data, having worked for a range of organisations across the commercial, academic and local government sectors. Currently I put this all to good work running PTS Consultancy, where our main aim is to provide excellent practical training for heritage professionals and support community heritage projects to engage with lidar and landscapes.

When not at my desk you’ll most likely find me outdoors – running, cycling or swimming – and I’m always on the look out for my next adventure big or small!

If you have any questions or just want to say hello, why not drop me a line using the form below?

I look forward to hearing from you!


I am typically at my desk weekdays during school hours (9am- 2.15pm GMT / BST)
