Archaeological Geophysics Environmental & Criminal Forensics

Date: 4th & 5th December 2018
Venue: Geological Society of London, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London

A 2 day joint meeting of the Near Surface Geophysics and Forensic Geoscience Groups of the Geological Society.

4th December 2018: Recent Work in Archaeological Geophysics

The Near Surface Geophysics Group of the Geological Society of London (NSGG) is pleased to announce the thirteenth in a succession of biennial day meetings devoted to archaeological geophysics. Near surface geophysical techniques have become increasingly established in archaeological research and evaluation over the past decade and are now routinely applied in archaeological investigations. This meeting offers a forum where contributors from the UK and further afield can present and debate the results of recent research and case studies. Suppliers of equipment and software also attend and the meeting therefore represents an invaluable opportunity for both archaeological and geophysical practitioners to exchange information about recent developments.

Convenor: Paul Linford, Historic England, Fort Cumberland, Eastney, Portsmouth, PO4 9LD, UK; email: Paul.Linford@HistoricEngland.org.uk

5th December 2018: Criminal & Environmental Forensics

This multidisciplinary meeting will capture shared interests between the geological, environmental science, engineering, geotechnical, mining and archaeological communities with those practitioners working in the criminal and environmental fields. Expected sessions will include use of such techniques to the intelligence community, novel methods of analysing forensic geoscience material, case and controlled studies, remote sensing, geochemistry, geophysics, etc.

Convenors: Jamie Pringle, School of Geography, Geology & Environment, Keele University, Keele, Staffs, ST5 5BG, UK. email: j.k.pringle@keele.ac.uk Alastair Ruffell, School of Geography, Archaeology & Palaeoecology, Queen’s University, Belfast, N.Ireland, BT7 1NN; email: a.ruffell@qub.ac.uk

It is anticipated that each meeting will attract 100 or more participants. As well as oral presentations, there will be space for commercial and poster displays. Fellows will enjoy a conference attendance fee discount, with discounts for attendees if they attend both days.
