Geophysical Surveying with Touching the Tide at Snape

Access Cambridge Archaeology

Geophysical Surveying with Touching the Tide at Snape A training day for 12 volunteers in the theory and practice of geophysical surveying for archaeological features took place in Snape, near Aldebugh, last Saturday as part of the Touching the Tide landscape partnership on the Suffolk coast.

Following a very successful field-walking event last month (which you can read about here), Access Cambridge Archaeology (ACA) were invited to return to Snape on Saturday 15th March 2014 to run another archaeological field survey day for local residents and volunteers, this time introducing the geophysical prospection techniques of magnetometry and resistivity. The training day was commissioned by the Heritage Lottery Funded landscape partnership project Touching the Tide.

Dr Marcus Brittain, of Cambridge Archaeological Unit (CAU), joined ACA to lead the day and lend his expertise in the use of geophysics in commercial and academic archaeological field investigations. He is the site director of CAU’s excavations at Ham Hill
