electromagnetic induction prehistory soil mapping archaeology Stonehenge
Project description

To understand the prehistoric human-landscape interactions that have shaped the Stonehenge landscape (UK), detailed palaeolandscape information is indispensable. While Stonehenge has been the focal point of archaeological studies for over four centuries, no intensive mapping of the Stonehenge soil has been conducted. The project aims to bridge this gap by reconstructing this past landscape starting from multi-receiver electromagnetic induction surveying.
