Geophysical Survey is a non-intrusive means of detecting subsurface archaeology and can be a vital tool in assessing the archaeological potential of a development site. A Planning Authority may require geophysical survey as part of an Archaeological Impact Assessment, prior to the commencement of development works and to inform further assessment and mitigation.
Our survey team can apply a number of different methods, selected based on the topography, parent geology and ground conditions, including:
- Ground Penetrating Radar
- Magnetic Susceptibility
- Electrical Resistance
- Electrical Conductivity
