Archaeology Field School Description
This field school is aimed at graduates in archaeology or an earth sciences background who wish to gain experience in archaeological geophysics, although it does not presume any prior existing knowledge in geophysics. The field school will provide students with an understanding of the scientific principles behind a range of techniques used in archaeological prospection and the basic field operation of such techniques, as well as data processing, data interpretation and geophysical reporting. Techniques covered will include ground penetrating radar (GPR), electromagnetic induction (EMI), direct current resistivity, magnetometer, gradiometer, magnetic susceptibility, and a range of marine geophysics techniques (side scan sonar, sub-bottom profiling and swath bathymetry). Hands-on experience for students will include GPR, magnetometer and EMI. The field school will be delivered through a series of lectures, demonstrations, practical hands-on sessions and computer-based labs.
