Introduction

Stratascan Ltd is a geophysical survey contracting company centrally based within the UK close to the attractive riverside town of Upton-upon-Severn in South Worcestershire. This allows easy access to all areas of England and Wales via the motorway network. The company operates from a converted barn set within a vineyard. This forms an attractive setting for the collation and interpretation of all the data gathered in the field.Amongst the techniques we offer is the capability to collect around 15ha of magnetic survey data per day. Our multi-frequency, multi-channel radar system allows high density data sweeps to be gathered. This is primarily for use in underground utility mapping and engineering applications, and can also be used for archaeology.Since our establishment in 1990 we have built a reputation as one of the leaders in shallow geophysics with applications in archaeological prospection, engineering and environmental assessments of green and brown field sites, underground utility mapping and forensic investigations.Our knowledgeable and experienced staff has been drawn together from archaeological, engineering and geological backgrounds to form a team of specialists that can respond to the diverse requirements of site investigation.
