Abstract

The interest of geophysical survey for archaeology needs no further justification; its use is an integral part of any broad approach to most archaeological sites. Beyond the interest of the geophysical map for the location of further excavations, the geophysical survey opens new and interesting perspectives of research, particularly in the domain of the spatial analysis of archaeological sites. However, geophysical mapping still encounters some difficulties in finding its proper place in archaeological documentation. The aim of this paper is to present reflections concerning geophysical mapping, both as regards its intrinsic nature and the type of information which it provides for archaeological research using a multidisciplinary approach. After a short history of geophysical mapping, we discuss the complementary approach of both geophysicists and archaeologists in the context of such geophysical mapping.
