Résumé

– Historical retrospective highlighting and honoring the pioneering work in archaeological prospecting made by development engineer Claus Colani.

– Colani’s principle of pulsed electromagnetic induction, his publications and biography.

– The high efficiency of Colani’s devices and his visionary approach are demonstrated by the unpublished data from the first Bavarian archaeo-geophysical survey carried out at Manching.

Introduction

The documentation of the research project “The Oppidum of Manching”, carried out by the Romano-Germanic Commission (RGK) of the German Archaeological Institute (DAI) from 1956 to 2018 and handed over to the archive of the Bavarian State Department for Monuments and Sites (BLfD) in 2018, included a detailed description and documentation of the first geophysical prospection performed for archaeology in Bavaria. This prospection was conducted by Claus Colani (1921-2016). His field notebooks and electronically generated “spectrograms” were accompanied by a multitude of magnetic tapes with the original data, and an UHER tape recorder which enabled automatic data collection (Read out Unit) and served as equipment for automatic data display by means of a Hewlett-Packard X–Y plotter. This was developed early on when Irvin Scollar applied a punch card recorder system, mounted in a Volkswagen Bus, for digital data recording (published in Lericis Journal Prospezioni Archaeologiche,...
