Archeological Surveying

In archeological sites it is very important to gather as much information as possible without having destructive consequences and be at the same time cost effective. Geophysical methods of surveying provide just that. Thanks to geophysical methods, it is possible to detect the underground presence of structures such as walls, foundations, floors, roads, kilns, hearths, tombs, graves, pit cavities, mounds and filled ditches. Archeological surveying allow the drawing of an “archaeological map” of the underground. This mapping has a double function: it indicates to archaeologists the exact location where excavation has to be made, and it can provide the criteria for proper land planning.


We get the best results by employing the most modern and effective methods (magnetometer, electrical profiling, electrical tomography and radar surveys) in archaeological field evaluation.
