Meetings

NSGG Meeting on Recent Work in Archaeological Geophysics
6th December 2016, The Geological Society, Burlington House, London.

The Near Surface Geophysics Group of the Geological Society of London (NSGG) is pleased to announce the twelfth in a succession of biennial day meetings devoted to archaeological geophysics. Near surface geophysical techniques have become firmly established in archaeological research and evaluation and are now routinely applied in archaeological investigations. This meeting offers a forum where contributors from the UK and further afield can present and debate the results of recent research and case studies. Suppliers of equipment and software also attend and the meeting represents an invaluable opportunity for both archaeological and geophysical practitioners to exchange information about recent developments.
 
Unfortunately our colleagues in the Forensic Geosciences Group are otherwise engaged this year and, although we explored other alternatives, it will be a one day archaeological geophysics meeting this time.

Call for papers

Those interested in contributing either a talk or poster are warmly encouraged to contact the convenor. As in past years we’ll be seeking abstracts of up to 1000 words in length accompanied by suitable illustrative material (up to four images) but we are looking into using an online submission website this time, details to follow. The closing date for submissions will be the 26th September 2016 and provisional session themes include: Technical developments; Assessing Landscapes (including Designed Landscapes); Integrated Approaches; Forensic Geophysics; and Case Studies.
