Archaeological Prospection is an interdisciplinary journal, intended to:
  • Inform archaeologists, environmental scientists, site developers, local authorities and regional environmental agencies about the wide range of scientific techniques available for the study of the near-surface environment.
  • Promote international collaboration amongst practitioners of prospection techniques.
  • Encourage discussion of field procedures, data presentation and interpretation of a wide range of survey methods and promote multi-technique comparisons, thus enhancing scientific collaboration.
  • Promote procedures and investigations for the safeguard of the historical and environmental cultural heritage.
  • Disseminate information about new (or newly applied) prospecting techniques.
  • Provide reviews of relevant techniques and applications.
  • Provide a forum for the discussion of best practice in shallow depth investigation of archaeological and environmental landscapes.
  • Encourage risk analysis studies to evaluate the economics of archaeological and environmental investigations.
Scope of the Journal
  • The scope of the Journal will be international, covering urban, rural and marine environments and the full range of underlying geology.
  • The Journal will contain articles relating to the use of a wide range of propecting techniques, including remote sensing (airborne and satellite), geophysical (e.g. resistivity, magnetometry) and geochemical (e.g. organic markers, soil phosphate). Reports and field evaluations of new techniques will be welcomed.
  • Contributions will be encouraged on the application of relevant software, including G.I.S. analysis, to the data derived from prospection techniques and cartographic analysis of early maps.
  • Reports on integrated site evaluations and follow-up site investigations will be particularly encouraged.
  • The Journal will welcome contributions, in the form of short (field) reports, on the application of prospection techniques in support of comprehensive land-use studies.
  • The Journal will, as appropriate, contain book reviews, conference and meeting reviews, and software evaluation.
  • All papers will be subjected to peer review.
