Geophysical Survey

Our dedicated geophysical survey team provides a variety of ground-based sensing services that assess the potential for archaeological remains, without needing to disturb the ground. Geophysical survey is a cost-effective and rapid means of assessing a site’s archaeology and is often employed alongside other archaeological investigation techniques, including desk-based assessment and archaeological trial trench evaluation.

Our dedicated team employs efficient approaches to assessing buried archaeological remains and generate accurate results that inform our clients’ scheme designs.

Our large team uses advanced survey equipment and has the capacity to undertake a number of sizable projects at one time. We operate across the UK, employing the most appropriate geophysical survey techniques to match local requirements. Our services include intensive survey by magnetometer and electrical resistance, covering sites of all sizes. We also deliver ground penetrating radar, electromagnetics and metal detecting.

The results of our geophysical surveys are clear and concise and our reports are produced to a high quality in a variety of digital and printed formats.
