BLUESTONE ARCHAEOLOGY ADOPTS POINTMAN TO MAP ROMAN ARCHAEOLOGICAL REMAINS IN UK
Bluestone Archaeology, a not-for-profit, community interest company (CIC), has adopted Prostar Holdings Inc.'s precision mapping technology, PointMan.
"We are pleased to announce that Prostar Holdings is making available its PointMan surveying software to help our excavation team accurately survey complex archeological features using high-accuracy GPS satellite technology," stated Stephen Baldwin, director of excavations. "The team is working with Prostar Holdings with the aim of adapting the PointMan for archeological use."
Bluestone Archaeology has been excavating a recently discovered coastal Roman fort in Burscough, near Liverpool in the United Kingdom. Spectacular geophysics confirmed the site to be an auxiliary Roman fort covering an area of around five acres (two hectares). The fort is thought to be an invasion fort that held around 1,000 Roman soldiers and a cavalry unit that patrolled the hinterland of the fort.
"It is very exciting to see that PointMan adds tremendous value outside of our core business, including archeology, where we can provide valuable results that will further the knowledge of the Roman military occupation of northwest Britain in the first
centuries AD," stated Page Tucker, chief executive officer of Prostar. "Our PointMan application is designed to precisely capture, record and display the precise location of critical buried objects, and although our focus is critical infrastructure, there are obviously other valuable use cases that go well beyond that, including archeology."
