Abstract

Several geophysical exploration methods have been applied to the problem of detecting and mapping underground archaeological remains with practical success. The most productive techniques are those for which the archaeological target exhibits the great physical contrast with the surrounding formation. Most widely used in archaeological prospection include Magnetic, Electromagnetic, Ground Penetrating Radar and Electrical Resistivity methods applied at the shallow surface. However, these conventional geophysical measurements for an archaeological prospection has been tried with relatively limited success. Therefore, we have developed an automatic imaging system named as Handy-ARM (Archaeological Resistivity Meter) for an archaeologist based on electrical resistivity techniques.
