Geophysical Prospecting on a Tumulus for the Detection of an Ancient Tomb of Great Historical Importance
Geoscientists Without Borders
This project, based primarily in northern Greece, focuses on the use of geophysical methods for the benefit of archaeologists and archaeometers and will help the localization of the most important Macedonia grave in an effort to preserve the cultural information of a population.
Archaeological sites around the world are threatened by forces including population growth, development, urbanization, pollution, tourism, vandalism and looting. Site management planning is emerging as a critical element not only for the conservation of this heritage, but also to address issues such as tourism and sustainable development.
In collaboration with the Greek Archaeological Authority, all findings will be donated to the local museum.
