Abstract:
Geophysical survey was conducted at three sites Shapwick Burtle, Greylake and Chedzoy, as part of the Mesolithic of the Wetland/Dryland Edge in the Somerset Levels project (RaSMIS 6624, Bell et al. 2012). Earth Resistance Tomography (ERT) and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) were used in combination with borehole surveys and test pits to examine evidence for Mesolithic activity at the interface between raised sandy Burtle deposits and lower lying wetland edge. Both geophysical techniques proved successful and produced useful results to complement the invasive investigations, although GPR was compromised in places due to the water-logged nature of the sites limiting the depth of effective penetration.
