Title:
Archaeological Geophysics: How They Work and Why You Should Care – An Irish Case Study

Abstract:
Over the past two decades, archaeology has been revolutionized by geophysical techniques, which allow for the non-invasive mapping of buried archaeological sites.  This lecture will first provide a general overview of archaeological geophysics with specific emphasis on two of the most popular techniques, ground-penetrating radar (GPR) and magnetometry.  From there, the use of geophysics in archaeological research will be demonstrated by a case study investigating a buried medieval landscape in central Ireland.

Speaker Bio:

Andrew Bair is a second year Anthropology MA candidate at the University of Denver.  His thesis work integrates geophysical methods, historical investigation, and archaeological excavation in the study of a high-medieval Anglo-Norman settlement in central Ireland.  His research has been partly sponsored through the Alice Hamilton Scholarship Fund.
