Type Geophysical Survey


NO 01932 15856 (centred on) A geophysical survey was carried out on elements of the cropmark complex at Leadketty, 23–26 April 2012, prior to excavation (see entry below). A gradiometer survey did not add more detail to the post-built features visible in aerial photographs, but was considerably more successful in defining ditch-defined enclosures, and added some ephemeral features not apparent in the cropmark record. A small, targeted area of resistance survey did not add much new detail, and high resolution gradiometer survey is recommended for any future investigation.
