Geophysical Survey

The aim of geophysical science in an archaeological context is to examine an area for potential sub-surface archaeological remains, without utilising invasive methods such as test trenching or excavation. This is accomplished by examining the physical properties of the soil, specifically the contrast between the physical properties of potential archaeological features and those of the surrounding soil. These contrasts, known as anomalies, are visible in the results of the survey. Rubicon offer two types of geophysical survey; Magnetic Gradiometry and Earth Resistance.
