p. 231-233

Résumé

– Electromagnetic induction survey was used to investigate the prehistoric landscape at Stonehenge.

– Borehole logs and forward modelling were used to develop a semi-automated interpretation scheme.

– Twenty excavations enabled the potential and limitations of the approach to be evaluated.

Aperçu du texte

Non-invasive survey methods continue to enhance the ways in which archaeological prospection and landscape studies can be performed. The increasing spatial resolution and sensitivity that both ground-based as well as airborne instruments provide improves our ability to investigate unknown aspects of past human lifeways over increasingly larger areas and in ever more inaccessible terrain (Canuto et al., 2018; Orengo et al., 2020). As the sole suite of non-invasive methods allowing to investigate buried archaeology directly, geophysical prospection takes a unique position in these approaches. Here, technological advancement, boosted by concerted research efforts (e.g. Trinks et al., 2018), has stimulated widespread adoption of these approaches not only in academic circles, but increasingly in managerial as well as commercial settings.

As scales of implementation increase, however, the fundamental limitations of geophysical data for (landscape) archaeological research become equally mor...
