From the Publisher:

Thanks to ever more sophisticated technology archaeologists can identify much that is beneath the soil without having to excavate. From Pitt– Rivers banging the surface of the ground with a pick in the late nineteenth century, through Atkinson’s revolutionary use of the “Megger–Earth Tester”, to modern–day radar survey, the value of geophysical techniques is lucidly explained—with many real–life case studies.

Chris Gaffney and John Gater are visiting lecturers at the University of Bradford and associate editors of The Journal of Archaeological Prospecting. They have been advisers to Channel 4’s Time Team for 10 years, and John Gater appears regularly on the program.
