Geophysical survey is a cost-effective, non-intrusive and quick way of identifying archaeological features in advance of development. The main techniques used are magnetometry, electrical resistance, ground-penetrating radar and electromagnetic survey. All require specialist equipment and expert analysis of the results.
Our experienced survey teams and state-of-the-art equipment allow us to survey large areas within the timetable of the development scheme. Survey data can be downloaded and processed on site. The results can be provided in a variety of formats (including CAD) and are easily incorporated into clients' plans.
Our geophysical services are lead by Duncan Hale BA MIfA. He is an expert in the field and has conducted over 1500 surveys in Europe and the Middle East. All our geophysical work is carried out in accordance with national standards and guidelines.
