Geophysical Survey in Archaeological Field Evaluation

This is the second edition of English Heritage guidelines on the application of geophysical survey to archaeological field evaluation first published in 1995. They are intended to help archaeologists, particularly curators, consultants and project managers, gain a better understanding of the various techniques of geophysical survey. It is also hoped that survey practitioners will find them useful in establishing a code of good practice with their clients as an aid to raising the consistency and quality of geophysical survey in archaeological evaluation. Much has changed since the first edition and the new guidelines have been extensively revised and expanded with new material including the addition of 29 colour figures. They are organised into four parts intended to group together information of most use for the different envisaged audiences:

  1. Standards for Geophysical Survey
  2. Geophysical Survey and Planning
  3. Guide to Choice of Methods
  4. Practitioner's Guide to Good Practice
