The UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Archaeological Ensemble of the Bend in the Boyne (‘Brú na Bóinne’) is one of the most important archaeological landscapes in Europe. This paper reviews results from an ongoing project which is using high-resolution elevation (LiDAR) data and Worldview2 multispectral imagery to identify and catalogue new sites in and around the World Heritage Site. It stresses the importance of using a range of methodologies when remotely exploring landscapes, and illustrates how even within one of the most studied landscapes in Europe remote sensing technologies can identify new and exciting information.
