Earthsound director James Bonsall attended the first Commercial Archaeological Geophysics Seminar (#CAGS2014), at the University of Bradford, UK this week. Earthsound were the only Irish representatives at the event which brought together commercial practitioners, consultants, government stakeholders, curators and archaeologists to discuss the development of commercial geophysical surveys.
James presented the Irish perspective on commercial geophysical surveys (watch the video below) in his paper Tales from Across the Water: Analysing the Irish Experience of Geophysical Surveys, which discusses the limitations of magnetic scanning compared to detailed surveys. The paper was co-authored with Dr. Chris Gaffney and Prof. Ian Armit (University of Bradford) and Rónán Swan, NRA Head of Archaeology.
