Visualizing the prehistoric landscape

Conveniently for me, my dad is a graphic designer. Also conveniently for me, he is retired and can be persuaded that he has time on his hands to apply some of his skills to his daughter’s phd project… hence the image below, which I hope gives some indication of what the landscape at Conistone Dib, Wharfedale, may have looked like in use in late prehistory. It’s a combination of dad’s illustration and my photograph, and is based on the archaeology and geomorphology of the area that is coming into focus in this project.
