Ciudad Rodrigo Peninsular War Battlefield LiDAR
A low relief visualization of the Spanish LiDAR for Ciudad Rodrigo which shows the bastion defences of the town and the 1812 allied siege earthworks on the Great Teson hill to the north.
Having been besieged and taken by the French under Marshall Ney in 1810 Wellington’s Anglo-Portugese army besieged and recaptured the town between 7-20th January 1812. A camp and siege engineers park was erected to the north of the Great Teson Hill and Redoubt Renaud was attacked via an approach trench and captured on 8th January. Two parallel trenches with gun batteries were then built on the southern slopes of Great Teson and the northernmost bastion of the town defences was breached with heavy cannon fire along with a further breach on the north east side. The breaches were stormed and the town taken on 20th January.
