Archaeological Survey

Archaeological survey refers to host of different methods that seek to understand both archaeological sites and their wider landscapes. Pedestrian survey, for example, encompasses methods ranging from single person exploration to intensive and multi-discplinary coverage. Remote sensing is a further sub-domain of archaeological survey that incorporates satellite, airborne and terrestrial (i.e. geophysics or topographic mapping) methods and computational analysis to assess the character of surface or near-surface archaeology. Institute of Archaeology staff and students are involved in surveys in different parts of the world and also actively contribute to developing better survey methods. Particularly strong features of the Institute's work in this field include intensive survey strategies, the integration of survey with GIS and remote sensing methods, as well as the development of field projects in which survey is only one of several investigative stages.
