Geophysical surveys for archaeology
Construction and development projects legally require an archaeological and environmental survey. Our years of experience in UXO detection, together with our state of the art equipment, puts us in an excellent position to answer questions about what’s underneath the soil surface. In archaeology, we use the following geophysical (non-destructive) surveying techniques to provide insight in the subsoil:
1. Magnetometric surveys, with:
- active and passive detectors;
- analogue and computer-aided interpretation;
- surface and depth detection;
- single and multi-sensor configuration.
However, we provide more services for the archaeology than just geophysical surveys. Indeed, at Bom-Be we have the required know-how for locating and interpreting of aerial photographs, which can be of particular interest for historical research.
And it goes without saying that we often provide assistance to archaeological digs in areas with a risk of finding UXO.
