Analysis of LiDAR and aerial photography, conducted by Historic England for the Secrets of the High Woods Project and commissioned from Fugro BV, has led to the rediscovery of a long-speculated route from Roman times between Chichester and Arundel in England.

The LIDAR system used to accomplish this mission was the Litemapper 6800 system, which includes a RIEGL LMS-Q680i long-range airborne laser scanner.

The discovery of this road is important, putting into context the Roman-era sites along its route.
