A comprehensive and comprehendible guide to one of the most promising methods of non-invasive archaeological exploration...Traditional archaeological excavation methods are sometimes daunting due to political or financial complications. Other times, an improperly planned dig can destroy or entirely overlook the artifacts being sought. In either case, ground-penetrating radar, or GPR, is an increasingly applicable technology, but one that few archaeologists truly understand. That is where this book excels. It is tailored towards an archaeological community who are for the most part apprehensive about using 'high-tech' instruments and feel more comfortable on their hands and knees digging in the dirt. Its abundant illustrations and easy-to-understand tables help to keep this potentially daunting subject matter accessible. It also contains more complex equations and theory so that the more technically oriented can use it as a reference tool. Includes instructions and case examples, which highlight the strengths and weaknesses of this important technology and, overall, give a clear picture of strengths and pitfalls of the medium as a whole.
