Snape Geophysics

A training day for 12 volunteers in the theory and practice of geophysical surveying for archaeological features took place on 15th March 2014. The techniques of resistivity and magnetometry were demonstrated on a field near Decoy Wood, east of Snape, and a 30 x 30m grid was surveyed in the afternoon using the two techniques.
