Archaeology without holes ... Geophysical prospection in Westphalia

Non-destructive methods play a major role not only in the discovery but also in the further exploration of archaeological relics.
Especially the large-scale exploration of archaeological landscapes like Stonehenge would be unthinkable without these methods. In addition to aerial photographs and airborne laser scanning, geophysical measurements provide information about hidden structures and objects in the ground. For example, probes are used to measure the earth's magnetic field and disturbances to the magnetic field caused by building structures underground are made visible. Joris Coolen M. A. (LWL Archaeology for Westphalia, Münster) will highlight the role of prospection in today's archaeology in his lecture, using examples from Westphalia. The event will be broadcast as a live stream on YouTube. Participants can ask questions via the chat.
