The scale of application of geophysical methods in archaeology has been quite limited in comparison to exploration geophysical surveys employed in engineering, hazardous-waste, ground-water, oil and gas, and mineral research. Archaeogeophysical projects have been directed toward discovering or detailing archaeological features that are generally smaller in scale and occur over a relatively smaller range of sizes than the features of interest in exploration geophysics.

It is suggested that the interplay of scale of application with both research orientation and limitations of the geophysical methods has worked to constrain the use of geophysical technology in archaeology. By expanding the scale of...
