Magnetic methods have become common tools in the archaeological disciplines. They are generally used to localize and classify archaeological features relatively close to the ground surface. Within a short time onsite, these methods can scan large areas with high spatial resolution and distinguish anthropogenic anomalies within native soils. However, a comprehensive inventory and documentation of archaeological features requires measuring several physical properties, something that is possible only through a combination of several different prospecting methods. The example described in this article details a situation in which three different geophysical methods perfectly complement one another and therefore can enable a comprehensive inventory and documentation of the archaeological feature lying below the surface.
