Who we are
ArchaeoPhysica was founded in 1999 by Anne and Martin Roseveare to provide quality geophysical survey coupled with high levels of service and innovation. Since then it has developed into one of the most capable providers in the UK with thousands of hectares of experience across sites, geologies, terrains and technologies.
- the introduction of the caesium magnetometer to UK archaeology in 1999 and continuous use since
- GNSS (GPS) tracked electromagnetic survey in Ireland and UK from 2003
- the first magnetometer cart in UK archaeology, from summer 2003
- development of advanced geophysical processing techniques for total field data
- development in 2010 of an intelligent multi-sensor acquisition system
- the use of ATV-towed sledges and carts
What we do
We undertake a large amount of commercial survey (e.g 1000 ha in 18 months) and have undertaken visual survey of about 100 sq. km of upland Wales on 30m transects including over 50 sq. km within the highest parts of Snowdonia.
In recent years we have been developing hardware, firmware and software for geophysical systems integration and rapid quad-based survey systems. These have had widespread deployment across the UK. We also explore novel prospecting technologies and automated means of data collection, fusion and interpretation.
For a number of years we have taught a large number of Birkbeck College (London) undergraduate and post-graduate archaeology students field geophysics with intensive theoretical tuition through lectures and tutorials.
What we can offer
We welcome opportunities to participate and collaborate across Europe and our expertise means we are particularly able to assist with the following:
- any aspect of systems integration, firmware and software production
- large and very large (landscape) scale geophysical and topographical surveys
- technical research of soil geophysical properties, anomaly formation and geophysical texture
- teaching of students, placements, field schools, writing course materials
