    Abstract:
    This is the paper I gave at the Public Archaeology Twitter Conference 5 (2020). The conference theme was public archaeology in lockdown. The paper is about my digital landscape archaeology intervention called #DailySarsen which began on 6 April 2020 during the Covid-19 emergency. It focusses on one specific sarsen stone in Wiltshire (UK) and takes the reader on a walk into the landscape to explore the stone. The paper included images, video and audio to try to evoke, albeit in 16 tweets, the experience of the downland landscape and its archaeology, and some of the things that as a guide I would have spoken about with participants on a walk.
    Notes:
    Each image has alt text. These images were tweeted: the text from the tweets is included above each image. The document is in portrait and landscape format.
