Since summer 2010 those survey methods where intensified and expanded as part of the project “Aerial Archaeology in Westphalia”. The focus lies on the combination of the different archaeological survey methods such as:

  • Aerial Archaeology
  • Airborne Laser Scanning
  • Geomagnetic
  • Georadar (ground penetrating radar)
  • Pedological examinations and radiocarbon dating
  • Geodesy
