    One of the other things to be taken into consideration in East Anglia is human habitation and intervention, over the last couple of thousand years, hunter gatherers, tribal rivalries not to mention the Roman Occupation have left their mark in the soil, I remember a friend of mine used to fly over areas of East Anglia during the 90's before the advent of Google Earth to detect Roman Archaeology, he found 2 previously unknown Roman Villas (one being near Duxford) this way, there was so much pre Roman and Roman development in East Anglia that when the Airfields were being built they were in the same area as strategically advantageous Archaeological sites. there are also some sink holes which from the air look to all intense and purposes a bomb crater and sometimes even in a row. Anyway I thought that this would be of interest from another point of view.
    You are quite correct there Soldierblu!

    Also the Angles and Saxons had similar habitation there

    Combat damage from 60 years ago is difficult to spot, largely because the locals clean/fix it up, so that they can continue their lives.

    Google earth is a good resource, but it is not updated often enough, and the definition really isn't that great. Use it to go look at areas of active combat today, like Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, etc, etc, and you will see how quickly the locals make the damage disappear.
