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.

Call for papers

Those interested in contributing either a talk or poster are warmly encouraged to contact the convenor and, as in past years, we would welcome abstracts of up to 1000 words in length accompanied by suitable illustrative material (up to four images).   Contrary to the suggestion in the first announcement, please send abstracts directly to the convenor, Paul Linford, at the address below.
