Recent Work in Archaeological Geophysics & Forensic Geoscience: Future Horizons

Geological Society of London, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London, 2nd and 3rd December 2014

2nd December 2014: Recent Work in Archaeological Geophysics

The Near Surface Geophysics Group (NSGG) is pleased to announce its eleventh biennial meeting devoted to archaeological geophysics offering a forum to present and debate the results of recent research and case studies. Equipment and software suppliers also attend so it will be a valuable opportunity for archaeological and geophysical practitioners to exchange information about recent developments. We are once again collaborating with the International Society for Archaeological Prospection (ISAP) who will be offering a prize for the best poster and bursaries for ISAP students presenting at the meeting as well as holding their AGM at the end of the day.  For more information and notes for presenters download this document and the Geological Society website.

An updated programme of presentations is now available.

Presentation abstracts - Both low (7Mb) and higher (15Mb) resolution PDF versions are now also available for download

3rd December 2014: Forensic Geoscience: Future Horizons

This multidisciplinary meeting will capture shared interests between the geological, environmental science, forensic science, geophysics, engineering, geotechnical, mining and archaeological communities in assessing the future of forensic geoscience. Sessions will include quality assurance in forensic geoscience; geoforensic applications in serious crime and terrorism investigations; techniques at crime scenes; environmental crime; and the issues of interpretation of geological forensic evidence. For more information and notes for presenters see:

A provisional programme of presentations is now available.
