Archaeology Seminar Series

Museum of The Gorge

What is it like to be a Commercial Geophysicist in the UK?

The use of Archaeological geophysics, as made famous in television’s ‘Time Team’, is more commonplace than people might actually realise. Since its adoption by the commercial sector in the 1980s, the methodology, equipment and processing software used for geophysical survey has come on in leaps and bounds, developing into a vital part of the archaeologist's toolkit and the associated modern planning process. With a discussion of techniques and case studies which demonstrate the high quality of geophysical data collected on a day in, day out, come rain or shine, as well as some of the limitations of the kit and in addition other facts about geophysical surveys. This is quite simply an opportunity to find out everything and anything about geophysical surveying.

This talk will be by Alistair Gait, who began his commercial career with the British School at Rome, where he worked on the Rome's Mediterranean Ports Project at the Roman city of Utica in Tunisia. Following this he was employed by Geophysical Surveys of Bradford, with projects including the Exmoor Longstone Landscape Project, before moving to work for AOC in their York office. He is currently the secretary for the New Generation Special Interest Group within the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists.

Alistair lives in Yorkshire and is a Project Supervisor (Geophysics) with AOC Archaeology.

This free talk starts at 6pm at the Museum of The Gorge - all are welcome.
