Archaeological Prospection is an interdisciplinary journal intended to: Inform professional archaeologists local authorities and site developers about the practice and interpretation of a wide range of scientific techniques applied to archaeological sites. Promote collaborative research between archaeologists and practitioners of prospection techniques with a view to improving the reliability of archaeological interpretations based on these techniques. Encourage international discussion of field procedures data presentation and interpretation of a wide range of prospection techniques and promote multi-technique comparisons thus enhancing scientific collaboration. Disseminate information about new (or newly applied) prospecting techniques. Provide reviews of relevant techniques and applications. Provide a forum for the discussion of best practice in professional archaeological prospection. Scope of the Journal The geographical scope of the Journal will be international covering all types of archaeological site (eg. urban rural marine etc.) and the full range of underlying geology. The Journal will contain articles relating to the archaeological uses of a wide range of prospecting techniques including remote sensing (airborne and satellite) geophysical (eg. resistivity magnetometry etc.) and geochemical (eg. organic markers soil phosphate etc.). Reports and field evaluations of new techniques will be welcomed. The Journal will also discuss the application of relevant software to the data derived from archaeological prospection. The Journal will welcome contributions relating to the application of archaeological prospection techniques to the historic built environment. Reports on integrated site evaluations and follow-up excavations will be particularly encouraged. The Journal will as appropriate contain book reviews conference and meeting reviews and software evaluation. All papers will be subjected to peer review.
