Abstract/Summary

The DART Project is examining four specific locations in great detail to that we can identify how environmental changes impact soil conditions. Such aspects greatly affect the success of archaeological prospection (both geophysical and optical techniques). The project has collected in-situ measured water content, electrical conductivity, temperature and weather readings and will compare these values with results from monthly geophysical and spectrometry surveys. This paper will examine the effects of differing buried archaeological ditch sediments and the adjacent undisturbed soils and changes in water content (derived from apparent permittivity measurements) on the changing geophysical response, recorded throughout the survey period (June 2011-Sept 2012).
