  • The GPR investigation of the Shakespeare family graves
    • Authors: Erica Carrick Utsi; Kevin S. Colls
      Abstract: As part of a multi-disciplinary programme of archaeological investigation, GPR was used to investigate the Shakespeare family graves below the chancel of Holy Trinity Church in Stratford, Warwickshire, England. Although William Shakespeare's place as perhaps one of the most famous individuals who has ever lived has been cemented in the annals of history, much of his life and death is still shrouded in mystery. As a result, a large number of myths and legends have grown up around his burial place. These included the suggestion of an unusually deep burial or the presence of a large family crypt beneath the chancel floor. A series of multi-frequency surveys was carried out to establish the depth and structure of the graves and as much burial information as possible. Close survey (using a strategy developed and successfully applied in Westminster Abbey and other churches) was used in order to optimise the quality of patterning in the data. Within Holy Trinity, this strategy was validated by the detection of a known vault.The use of multiple frequencies was critical in this investigation in order both to detect the graves and also to establish information about the graves. Too low a frequency may result in non-detection because of the relatively low target resolution whereas too high a frequency risks insufficient depth penetration.From this process a number of myths can now be discounted, including the presence of a large Shakespeare family vault or crypt. Instead, the GPR survey suggests that a simple, shallow, earth-cut burial lies beneath William's tombstone. One story however concerning disturbance of William Shakespeare's grave in order to remove his skull does correspond with the evidence.

  • Geoarchaeological evaluation of ground penetrating radar and Magnetometry
           surveys at the iron age burial mound rom in Norway
    • Authors: Petra Schneidhofer; Erich Nau, Jessica Leigh McGraw, Christer Tonning, Erich Draganits, Lars Gustavsen, Immo Trinks, Roland Filzwieser, Lisa Aldrian, Terje Gansum, Jan Bill, Wolfgang Neubauer, Knut Paasche
      Abstract: Following magnetometry and ground penetrating radar surveys, a geoarchaeological field evaluation was carried out at the Iron Age burial mound of Rom in Slagendalen, Vestfold County, Norway, in order to assess the accuracy of the geophysical data interpretation and to investigate specific questions that have arisen during data interpretation. The evaluation was conducted within the framework of an archaeological excavation campaign in 2013, which enabled direct access to the subsurface materials. The archaeological stratification was recorded by laser scanning using a three-dimensional (3D) single-surface approach, permitting a virtual reconstruction of the excavated part of the mound and facilitating the comparison between excavation and prospection data. Selected sediment sequences were targeted with in situ and laboratory-based measurements for correlation purposes, including magnetic susceptibility, electrical conductivity and water content measurements. Here we present the methodological approach and the results of the geophysical prospection surveys, followed by a geoarchaeological evaluation and a discussion of the impact on the overall archaeological investigation.

  • A pixel-based semi-stochastic algorithm for the registration of
           geophysical images
    • Authors: Alexandra A. Karamitrou; Gregory N. Tsokas, Maria Petrou
      Abstract: The availability of overlapping geophysical data produced by different sensors provides complementary information about the investigation area. However, joint interpretation of these geophysical images is challenging. One common problem is the registration of the images that is necessary to compare features appearing in dissimilar datasets. Measurements in archeological geophysics are often performed by handheld devices therefore, the actual location of the measurement could be different from the planned one. These offsets are localized and essentially random. Consequently, it is impossible to correct them following usual deterministic approaches. This paper presents a novel registration method between geophysical images produced from different prospecting methods. We developed a semi-stochastic, iterative registration algorithm that applies random local transformations in small randomly selected regions of the processed image. The algorithm uses the mutual information of the images as similarity measure due to its suitability in images of different modalities. We use a pair of images to train the algorithm and tune its parameters. Afterwards, we test the method with nine different pairs of geophysical images from various locations and characteristics. The results, in all cases, show a significant increase of the mutual information in comparison with the registration through geographical coordinates.

  • Large-scale geophysical archaeological prospection pilot study at Viking
           Age and medieval sites in west Jutland, Denmark
    • Authors: Roland Filzwieser; Lis Helles Olesen, Wolfgang Neubauer, Immo Trinks, Esben Schlosser Mauritsen, Petra Schneidhofer, Erich Nau, Manuel Gabler
      Abstract: In 2014, a team of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Archaeological Prospection and Virtual Archaeology, in collaboration with Holstebro Museum, conducted a geophysical archaeological prospection pilot study at several Viking Age and medieval sites in West Jutland, Denmark; sites that had been discovered earlier by aerial archaeology. The high-resolution surveys employed motorized ground-penetrating radar (GPR) and magnetometer systems as well as novel post-processing software. The aim of this study was to test the suitability of these methods and the chosen approach to efficiently explore, investigate and document prehistoric settlements on a large scale under the prevalent environmental conditions in this part of Denmark. Over the course of five days of fieldwork, numerous structures of archaeological interest, such as the remains of longhouses, property boundaries, pathways, pit houses and other buried remains of the settlements, were detected and mapped. The combination of the data gathered by magnetic and GPR prospection with the already existing aerial imagery permitted an integrated archaeological interpretation, resulting in considerable new knowledge about the investigated sites. In this paper, we present the results obtained for the Viking Age settlement at Stadil Mølleby and a medieval village near Rysensten, both situated on sandy soils.

  • Removal of sensor tilt noise in fluxgate gradiometer survey data by
           applying one-dimensional wavelet filtering
    • Authors: Nicolas Note; Philippe De Smedt, Timothy Saey, Wouter Gheyle, Birger Stichelbaut, Hanne Van den Berghe, Jean Bourgeois, Veerle Van Eetvelde, Marc Van Meirvenne
      Abstract: Archaeological prospection with magnetometer instruments is performed in a wide range of field configurations, ranging from single probe setups to mobile arrays that allow combining multiple sensors. The latter type, whereby instruments are mounted onto a cart system, are particularly prone to motion-induced noise. Sensor tilt, for example, causes in-line noise that can obscure magnetic variations present. To remediate these effects, image processing techniques are the most frequently applied. However, while efficient in producing more levelled data plots, these procedures are often associated with a smoothing penalty whereby low-intensity or small-scale anomalies are masked. We propose a one-dimensional signal processing approach, based on discrete wavelet analysis. By selecting wavelets that correspond to the motion-induced noise patterns, such effects can be targeted more precisely, reducing the risk of feature masking or artefact creation. Evaluation of the proposed procedure on three fluxgate gradiometer datasets collected with a hand-propelled push-cart system, proved it a valid and more dedicated method to reduce the impact of motion induced noise in magnetometry data collected with cart mounted array setups.

  • Geochemical insight during archaeological geophysical exploration through
           in situ X-ray fluorescence spectrometry
    • Authors: Adam D. Booth; Veerle Vandeginste, Dominic Pike, Russell Abbey, Roger A. Clark, Chris M. Green, Nathan Howland
      Abstract: Geophysical techniques are widely applied in archaeological exploration, providing rapid and non-invasive site appraisal. Geochemical analyses contribute significantly in archaeometry, but conventional laboratory apparatus requires that samples are removed from their in situ context. Recent advances in field-portable apparatus facilitate in situ geochemical analysis, and this apparatus is deployed in this paper alongside conventional geophysical analysis to characterize the archaeological prospectivity of a site. The target is subsurface debris at the crash site of a World War II Mosquito aircraft.A 100 m long transect of magnetic, electromagnetic (EM) and in situ X-ray fluorescence (XRF) measurements was acquired in November 2014, with soil samples also collected for laboratory validation. A subset of XRF measurements was repeated in August 2015 alongside a targeted grid, 900 m2 in area, of magnetic gradiometry profiles. Built chiefly from wood, the Mosquito responds weakly in magnetic and EM data; magnetic gradient anomalies of ±10 nT/m are instead attributed to thermoremanence in a burnt layer at 0.2–0.4 m depth, produced by the impact fire following the crash. XRF spectrometry reveals co-located enrichments in copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) ions (400% and 200%, respectively, above background). These metals are alloyed into brass, present in abundance in the ammunition on board the Mosquito.Records from the in situ XRF sampling compare well with laboratory validated data, although a bespoke calibration for the local soil type would improve the reliability of absolute geochemical concentrations. XRF responses vary significantly with ground conditions: the November 2014 acquisition was performed soon after ploughing at the site, potentially providing a fresh charge of metallic contaminants to the ground surface. Where the chemistry of a target is anomalous with respect to host soil and a source-to-surface transport mechanism is present, in situ XRF analysis offers improved understanding of a target compared to geophysical interpretation alone.

  • LiDAR-guided Archaeological Survey of a Mediterranean Landscape: Lessons
           from the Ancient Greek Polis of Kolophon (Ionia, Western Anatolia)
    • Authors: Benedikt Grammer; Erich Draganits, Martin Gretscher, Ulrike Muss
      Abstract: In 2013, an airborne laser scan survey was conducted in the territory of the Ionian city of Kolophon near the western coast of modern Turkey as part of an archaeological survey project carried out by the Mimar Sinan University of Istanbul (Turkey) and the University of Vienna (Austria). Several light detection and ranging (LiDAR) studies have been carried out in the temperate climate zones of Europe, but only a few in Mediterranean landscapes. Our study is based on the first LiDAR survey carried out for an archaeological purpose in Turkey and one of the first in the Mediterranean that have been planned, measured and filtered especially for archaeological research questions. The interpretation of LiDAR data combined with ground-observations proved extremely useful for the detection and documentation of archaeological remains below Mediterranean evergreen vegetation and dense maquis. This article deals with the methodological aspects of interpreting LiDAR data, using the Kolophon data as a case study. We offer a discussion of the strengths and limitations of LiDAR as an archaeological remote sensing method and suggest a best practice model for interpreting LiDAR data in a Mediterranean context. © 2017 The

  • Reconstruction of a Palaeosurface and Archaeological Site Location in an
           Anthropogenic Drift Sand Area
    • Authors: Anna Schneider; Florian Hirsch, Klaus-Peter Wechler, Alexandra Raab, Thomas Raab
      Abstract: Knowledge of the position of archaeological remains in the surface relief provides important basic information for archaeological survey design and interpretation. Geomorphological processes in (pre)history may have resulted in a modification of the local relief around archaeological sites, especially in areas that are prone to sediment erosion and relocation, such as sheet sand and dune landscapes. In this study, we reconstructed and analysed the palaeorelief of an archaeological excavation site in an inland dune area in southern Brandenburg, Germany. The remains of two Mesolithic sites were documented in the archaeological excavations and found to be associated with a buried soil horizon. To gather information on the relief of the buried soil surface, we used a combination of sedimentological and pedological profile descriptions along archaeological survey trenches and geophysical prospection with ground penetrating radar supplemented with microdrone photography and photogrammetry, global positioning system (GPS) surveys, and analysis of LiDAR-based elevation models. A digital elevation model of the buried surface was generated and analysed using a geographical information system (GIS). A comparison of the palaeosurface model with the recent surface elevation model shows that sand remobilization resulted in a considerable reshaping of the relief. Further, an analysis of the buried surface model shows that the relief position of the two archaeological sites in the study area was considerably more prominent in relation to the corresponding buried soil surface than in relation to the recent surface morphology. The results affirm the significance of Holocene sediment relocation for the local surface morphology and the importance of considering such relief modifications in archaeological surveys.

  • Drones in Archaeology. State-of-the-art and Future Perspectives
    • Authors: Stefano Campana
      Abstract: In addition to traditional platforms for low-level remote sensing (balloons, kites, etc.) new and more complex automated systems [unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones] have become available in the last decade. The success and market expansion of these platforms has been a driving force in the development of active and passive sensors specifically designed for UAVs. In the last few years archaeologists have started testing both platforms and sensors, particularly for the following applications: three-dimensional (3D) documentation of archaeological excavations; 3D survey of monuments and historic buildings; survey of archaeological sites and landscapes; exploratory aerial survey; and the archaeological survey of woodland areas. The scale of these applications has ranged from site-based to landscapes-based (approximately up to about 10 km2 in extent). The role of such platforms in the archaeological survey of excavations and landscapes, and in diagnostics more generally, is of great interest and is inexorably growing.

  • Reconstructing Palaeogeography and Inter-island Visibility in the
           Wallacean Archipelago During the Likely Period of Sahul Colonization,
           65–45 000 Years Ago
    • Authors: Shimona Kealy; Julien Louys, Sue O'Connor
      Abstract: The palaeogeography of the Wallacea Archipelago is a significant factor in understanding early modern human colonization of Sahul (Australia and New Guinea), and models of colonization patterns, as well as archaeological survey and site interpretation, are all heavily dependent on the specific palaeogeographic reconstruction employed. Here we present five reconstructions for the periods 65, 60, 55, 50, and 45 000 years ago, using the latest bathometric chart and a sea-level model that is adjusted to account for the average uplift rate known from Wallacea. Using this data we also reconstructed island areal extent as well as topography for each time period. These reconstructions were then used to estimate visibility for each island in the archipelago, and finally to model how intervisible each island was during the period of likely human colonization. Our models provide the first evidence for intervisibility between Timor and Australia at ca. 65–62 ka and 47–12 ka, the second of which is notable for its overlap with the oldest radiocarbon dates from Timor-Leste and Australia. Based on intervisibility alone, however, our study suggests that the northern route into Papua New Guinea was the most parsimonious route for first modern human entry into Sahul. Our study provides archaeologists with an important baseline from which to conduct physical surveys, interpret archaeological data, and theorize the colonization of Wallacea and Sahul. © 2017 The

  • Digital Terrain Analysis Reveals New Insights into the Topographic Context
           of Australian Aboriginal Stone Arrangements
    • Authors: W. Boone Law; Michael J. Slack, Bertram Ostendorf, Megan M. Lewis
      Abstract: Satellite-derived surface elevation models are an important resource for landscape archaeological studies. Digital elevation data is useful for classifying land features, characterizing terrain morphology, and discriminating the geomorphic context of archaeological phenomena. This paper shows how remotely sensed elevation data obtained from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's Advanced Land Observing Satellite was integrated with local land system spatial data to digitally classify the topographic slope position of seven broad land classes. The motivation of our research was to employ an objective method that would allow researchers to geomorphometrically discriminate the topographic context of Aboriginal stone arrangements, an important archaeological site type in the Pilbara region of northwest Australia. The resulting digital terrain model demonstrates that stone arrangement sites are strongly correlated with upper topographic land features, a finding that contradicts previous site recordings and fundamentally changes our understanding of where stone arrangement sites are likely to have been constructed. The outcome of this research provides investigators with a stronger foundation for testing hypotheses and developing archaeological models. To some degree, our results also hint at the possible functions of stone arrangements, which have largely remained enigmatic to researchers. © 2017 The

  • The Passive Seismic Technique ‘HVSR’ as a Reconnaissance Tool for
           Mapping Paleo-soils: The Case of the Pilastri Archaeological Site,
           Northern Italy
    • Authors: Nasser Abu Zeid; Erica Corradini, Samuel Bignardi, Valentino Nizzo, Giovanni Santarato
      Abstract: Horizontal-to-vertical spectral ratio (HVSR) is a widely used geophysical technique in seismic microzonation studies. It is based on a specific analysis of seismic ambient noise. The method allows to obtain the frequency and amplitude of the resonance peaks of a layered earth with increasing acoustic impedance contrasts. The peaks can be interpreted to obtain an estimation of depth(s) of the impedance contrast horizon(s).Based on the assumption that long-term human trampling results in sediment's stiffening, which increased both density and velocity of seismic shear waves, the HVSR method was applied to investigate the shallow subsurface of an important, Middle Bronze Age, archaeological site called ‘Pilastri Terramara’ discovered at the end of the last century.Following recent excavations, archaeologists supposed that the settlement could extend outside the initially hypothesized borders, and decided to involve geophysicists to verify the truthiness of this new hypothesis and consequently to map the possible spatial extent of the paleo-surfaces frequented by ancient occupants. The purpose of the geophysical investigation was then to detect and possibly to map one or more anthropogenic paleo-surfaces over a relatively large area (about 12000 m2).Unfortunately, direct evidences showed that the paleo-surfaces were embedded in clayey sediments and laying at depths ranging between 50 and 170 cm below ground level. Furthermore, the area to be investigated is occupied by a farm with glasshouses and other buildings. These obstacles constituted a real challenge that hindered the utilization of the most commonly used geophysical methods in archaeology, i.e. ground penetration radar (GPR), magnetometry and electrical resistivity tomography. For these reasons, we decided to use the HVSR method as a reconnaissance exploration tool, to confirm or rule out the presence of such paleo-surfaces.Spectral peaks related to acoustic horizons provided evidences about their presence and allowed to estimate their depths as was later confirmed by a new excavation.

  • Geochemical Survey and Evaluation Excavations at Alderley Edge:
           Recognizing Anthropogenic Signatures within a Mining Site-scape
    • Authors: Christopher J. Carey; Norman R. Moles
      Abstract: Archaeological science and field investigations are making greater use of multi-element geochemical survey as a tool for site prospection and intra-excavation analysis. This increasing use of geochemical survey is allowing a new field of geoprospection to develop, a technique that has specific relevance to the investigation of sites containing archaeometallurgical evidence, due to the high geochemical loadings within archaeological contexts produced from past metalworking activities. Correspondingly, there have been relatively few published examples that compare the results of geochemical surveys against excavation data. This study reports the use of geochemical data to investigate a multi-period mining site-scape at Alderley Edge, Cheshire, UK. The geochemical data is analysed using principle component analysis, which facilitates the identification of a number of geochemical anomalies. The site taphonomy and stratigraphic evolution of this mining site-scape is complex, with naturally occurring areas of lead and copper mineralization and a history of exploitation since the early Bronze Age. The geochemical anomalies were compared to the results of excavation within the survey area and this combination of excavation and prospection data allowed the reasons for the different geochemical anomalies to be explained. The article highlights the potential of using multi-element geochemical survey to investigate sites containing archaeometallurgical remains and provides a discussion of why context specificity is essential to correctly interpret multi-element geochemical data.
