GPR survey

GPR surveys have been conducted up to now only at four contexts. The main purpose of the GPR is to get a detailed scan of the underground to answer specific questions aimed to improve our understanding.

The roman villa at Aiali represents a good example to show the contribution of GPR within our research strategy. Shallow time slices indicate that the reflections to the tops of wall of the destroyed villa are quite shallow and begin to appear on the third slice that is from 17–34 centimeters below the ground surface. A utility pipe that crosses the site can be identified by a faint linear reflection in a deeper slice from 43–60 cm.
