Located in a bend of the river Weser near Höxter in eastern Westphalia (Germany), Corvey is one of the largest abandoned medieval towns in Central Europe. Excavations led by Hans-Georg Stephan between the 1970s and early 2000s revealed stone-walled cellars, a paved road and remains of a large church with cemetery (Stephan, 2000). Despite his semina...

Large parts of the urban layout of the abandoned Roman town of Bassianae (in present-day Serbia) are still discernible on the surface today due to the deliberate and targeted quarrying of the Roman foundations. In 2014, all of the town's intramural (and some extramural) areas were surveyed using aerial photography, ground-penetrating radar, and mag...

The potential of large-scale, non-invasive prospection methods has been widely recognized in archaeology in recent years. Their outstanding possibilities for the exploration of urban centres have been realised early on and applied at selected sites. The ‘ArchPro Carnuntum’ project stands out for its extensive investigation of a Roman provincial cap...

Zusammenfassung Das konventionelle Bild von Archäologen über eisenzeitliche Ernährung wird hauptsächlich durch die gewonnenen Erkenntnisse aus archäologischen Funden, sowie durch archäobotanische und archäozoologische Analysen geprägt. Per Definition werden Nahrungsmittel jedoch in der Regel gegessen und sind daher nicht in ihrer ursprünglichen Fo...
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...

Since 2010 the Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project (SHLP) has undertaken extensive archaeological prospection across much of the landscape surrounding Stonehenge. These remote sensing and geophysical surveys have revealed a significant number of new sites and landscape features whilst providing new information on many previously known monuments. T...
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...

While the main focus of the research so far was paid mainly to the elaborated depictions of garments, the weapons of warriors or the hand position of pugilists, in this article less prominent figures shou...
