Roman Křivánek
p. 239-243

Résumé

– Soil and archaeological sites are endangered by agricultural activity in the long-term. A comparison of soil erosion maps with the results of geophysical surveys could help.

– Combination of data could separate different chances for preservation of archaeological terrains.

Introduction

Changes in the intensity, extent and depth of agricultural cultivation lead to continuous degradation and erosion of the soil, playing a crucial role in the physical preservation of subsurface archaeological features, but also affecting the possibilities of archaeological prospection in the future. Changes in the thickness and composition of soil horizons can be monitored using a combination of several field and laboratory methods and current soil maps can be a good starting point. Publicly accessible soil maps include also current maps monitoring various factors of soil erosion and threats to the soil.

The aim of the paper is to present an alternative approach to the process of a two-way comparison of various soil erosion maps and the results of area geophysical surveys carried out at archaeological sites. Data on soil changes can provide a partial answer to questions regarding the presence, absence and sometimes the nature or intensity of the measured anomalies. Likewis...
