Video - drone footage overview of St Boniface Church, Papa Westray, Orkney
This new video from The Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology shows aerial footage of 12th-century St Boniface Church and its coastal surroundings.
The Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology (ORCA) team not only use the standard methods to survey archaeological sites, but also aerial drone photography and video.
This section of coast on the small island of Papa Westray in Orkney has experienced severe coastal erosion which has exposed significant archaeology.
ORCA were commissioned by Historic Environment Scotland to complete a survey of the area around St Boniface's Church as part of a larger community archaeology project which will provide a baseline assessment of coastally eroding archaeology.
