Ancient secrets of the New Forest have been revealed thanks to high-tech images beamed back by lasers from aircraft.
More than 3,500 archaeological sites have been uncovered, including prehistoric field systems, Bronze Age burial mounds and an Iron Age hill fort.
Many of these landmarks were hidden under dense forest until National Park archaeologists used a plane to fire harmless laser beams into the ground to build a 3D map of the surface.

The Beach Bus that connects tourist areas in Hampshire and Dorset is set to return next year.
The new service ran for five weeks during the summer holidays and attracted around 6,000 passenger journeys.
Operated by Wilts and Dorset in partnership with the New Forest National Park Authority, ran 8 times a day and 7 days a week.
The bus called at popular destinations such as Exbury Gardens, Buckler's Hard, the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu and Lymington.
The Beach Bus is supported by a £3.8m Department for Transport grant to encourage car-free travel in the New Forest and South Downs National Parks.
Jane Mills, the Buckler's Hard attraction manager, said:
‘Our visitor numbers were up this summer compared to last year, and the Beach Bus has helped local people as well as visitors to the New Forest to visit Buckler’s Hard and contribute towards that increase. We look forward to seeing it again next summer.’
Trains and bus operators are meeting with businesses from the New Forest and South Downs National Park to find out how they can persuade more visitors to leave their cars at home.
With fifty three million visits to the two national parks every year, they want more people to try greener forms of transport.
