Introduction

The Geophysical Service of the Archaeological Division of the State Antiquities Department in Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany, employs various geophysical methods for surveying archaeological sites: magnetic mapping, electrical mapping, electromagnetic induction (EMI), and ground-penetrating radar (GPR). These techniques are used not only for preparation of excavations but also, and mainly, for the documentation of sites, which, hopefully, will remain untouched and thus be preserved for the future.
