Article
Full-text available
Wetlands are of immense importance for archaeological research due to excellent preservation conditions for organic material. However, the detection and registration of archaeological remains in waterlogged areas, such as peatlands, bogs, mires, or lakeshores are very challenging. Alternative methods that can support traditional archaeological regi...
Article
Full-text available
In the framework of an archaeological prospection case study conducted at the Swedish Iron Age site of Uppåkra near Lund, a large number of anomalies caused by buried archaeological remains were detected using extensive magnetic surveys. Written sources report that the Swedish army under Field marshal Gustav Horn had established a camp near the vil...
Article

In August 2018, a group of experts working with terrestrial/marine geophysics and remote sensing methods to explore archaeological sites in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Scotland and Sweden gathered together for the first time at the Workshop ‘Sensing Archaeology in The North’. The goal was to exchange experiences, discuss challenges, and consider futu...
Article
Full-text available
The technical advancements of the past decade have rendered motorised, high-resolution ground-penetrating radar (GPR) investigations increasingly popular for archaeological research and cultural heritage management in Norway. However, the agricultural use of most survey areas limits the time available for fieldwork in spring and autumn and thus red...
Chapter
Over the course of four years (2012–2015) the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Archaeological Prospection and Virtual Archeology (LBI ArchPro), in collaboration with the Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG) and on behalf of the provincial government of Lower Austria, has conducted the comprehensive, non-invasive archaeological pro...

full-text view: http://rdcu.be/sYVT The complementary use of various archaeological prospection data sets offers a series of new possibilities for the investigation of prehistoric settlements. In addition to the separate interpretations of the single methods, the implementation of image fusion provides an additional tool to obtain an even higher d...
Article
Full-text available
Traditionally, ground‐penetrating radar (GPR) measurements for near‐surface geophysical archaeological prospection are conducted with single‐channel systems using GPR antennae mounted in a cart similar to a pushchair, or towed like a sledge behind the operator. The spatial data sampling of such GPR devices for the non‐invasive detection and investi...
Article
Full-text available
In September 2010, an exceptionally large cooking-pit site was discovered by means of geophysical prospection at Lunde in Vestfold County, Norway. The site contains in excess of 1000 cooking-pits and is, to date, one of the largest of its kind discovered in Scandinavia. Features known as cooking-pits are ubiquitous on Northern European archaeologic...

Are they all stray finds? Metal detector finds and the potential for preserved contexts below the plough soil In Vestfold County we have since 2013 seen a marked rise in metal detecting finds being delivered to the county archaeologists by amateur detectorists. These finds are a source of both joy and grief for archaeologists all over Norway. Shou...

In 2014, a team of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Archaeological Prospection and Virtual Archaeology, in collaboration with Holstebro Museum, conducted a geophysical archaeological prospection pilot study at several Viking Age and medieval sites in West Jutland, Denmark; sites that had been discovered earlier by aerial archaeology. The high-res...
Article
Full-text available
This paper presents the archaeological prospection, excavation and digital three-dimensional documentation of a previously unknown neolithic grave, presumably late neolithic, at the outstanding Iron Age site of Uppåkra in southern Sweden, and exemplifies a multidisciplinary approach to modern archaeological fieldwork. In the framework of a large-sc...
Article
Geophysical survey of the Iron Age settlement at Uppåkra church in southwestern Scania revealed some odd anomalies at the highest point of the study area. The anomalies showed a rectangle surrounded by a circle. Excavation uncovered a rectangular pit with drystone walls and a stone-paved floor, surrounded by an annular ditch with a diameter of eigh...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
invasive archaeological prospection based on geophysical measurements is enjoying increasing popularity throughout Eu-rope as well as Scandinavia (Viberg et al., 2011). While both geological and archaeological preconditions for prospection are in general more challenging in Sweden compared to applications for example in Austria or Great Britain, co...

The UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site Birka-Hovgården has been selected by the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Ar-chaeological Prospection and Virtual Archaeology (LBI Arch-Pro) and its Swedish partner organisation, the Contract Archae-ology Unit of the Central Swedish National Heritage Board, as one of several case study sites for the development...
