Seminar in Archaeology

Credit Hours:

This seminar will briefly explore the evolution of the use of geophysical methods for archaeology before moving to a consideration their use today. The most commonly used methods – electrical resistivity, conductivity, magnetometry and ground radar – will be examined in some detail. If nothing else, students will learn that ground radar is not the only geophysical technique useful to archaeology. There will ample opportunity for students to gain experience with the varied equipment on hand here at UGA. One small textbook, John Milson’s Field Geophysics makes a good take-home reference after the seminar.
