By Time Team geophysics expert Dr John Gater and Chris Gaffney. Forward by Prof Mick Aston

Thanks to ever-sophisticated technology, archaeologists can identify much that is beneath the soil without having to excavate. From Pitt-Rivers banging the surface of the ground with a pick in the late nineteenth century, right through to modern radar survey, the value of geophysical techniques is lucidly explained - with many real-life case studies.
Chris Gaffney and John Gater have been advisors to Channel 4's Time Team for 10 years, and John appears regularly on the programme. They are both visiting lecturers at the University of Bradford, associate editors of The Journal of Archaeological Prospecting, and are partners in GSB Prospection, an independent archaeological consultancy.
