Thanks to ever more sophisticated technologym archaeologists can identify much that is beneath the soil without having to excavate. From banging the surface of the ground with a pick in the late 19th 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.
