Geophysical prospection of Early Medieval settlements
Marešová, Barbora ; Valenta, Jan (advisor) ; Vošvrdová, Eliška (referee)
This bachelor thesis focuses on geophysical prospecting within non-destructive archaeology. To successfully carry out a geophysical survey on an archaeological site, it is important to understand the physical principles of the methods used as well as the history and characteristics of the site. This thesis aims to provide a comprehensive overview of this problem. The literature review begins with an explanation of the physical parameters that form the basis of geophysical prospecting, followed by an overview of the methods used for geophysical surveys. Finally, a practical example of geophysical prospecting is presented on the Praha-Královice site. The methodology, data processing, and interpretation of the results are also described in detail. The exploratory part of the thesis discusses how this prospecting led to the discovery of new information about the site, including the position and size of the medieval rectory. Additionally, this thesis provides a comparison of this prospecting with other published geophysical surveys of archaeological sites. Key words: geophysics, electromagnetic induction measurements, GPR, early Middle Ages, archaeology, Praha-Královice, rectory
Complex geophysical survey for archaeological purposes in the area of the Chateau Garden in Teplice
Vošvrdová, Eliška ; Dohnal, Jiří (advisor) ; Tábořík, Petr (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with application of geophysical methods in archeology, in the first part by an overview of the methods used for localization and analysis of historical anthropogenic cavities for archeological purposes. In the second part of the thesis, the application of selected methods on a specific locality is described. The initial part of the work summarizes information regarding the geophysical localization of historical anthropogenic cavities, thus underground objects, created by human activity. Their general and physical characteristics are introduced, as well as the specifics associated with their geophysical search, and the principles for choosing a method based on the parameters of the given object. The most frequently used methods in the survey of anthropogenic cavities include gravimetry, geoelectrical DC resistivity methods (symmetric resistivity profiling and electrical resistivity tomography), electromagnetic methods (ground penetrating radar and dipole electromagnetic profiling) and thermometry. A fundamental part of the diploma thesis is devoted to a comprehensive geophysical examination of the archaeological site. The location of the exploration work was the Chateau Garden in Teplice (North Bohemia), below which there are historical cellars. Ground penetrating radar,...
Geophysical methods for localization and exploration of deserted medieval villages
Vošvrdová, Eliška ; Dohnal, Jiří (advisor) ; Kněz, Jaroslav (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with geophysical methods used for localization and exploration of deserted medieval villages. It's comprised of two closely related parts: theoretical and practical. First of which, the thesis reviews the current knowledge about deserted medieval villages, how to locate them and describes practical application of selected geophysical methods such as magnetometry, geoelectrical resistivity survey (symmetric resistivity profiling, electrical resistivity tomography) and electromagnetic (ground penetrating radar, dipole electromagnetic profiling). In addition to the explanation of basic principles and practical use of the methods in archaeological prospection, this part of the thesis presents particular examples of structures and objects that are being sought around the areas of deserted medieval villages. The second part is experimental and its main aim is to describe geophysical research of a selected area called Štítary u Městce Králové. The primary purpose of research was to localize relicts of deserted medieval village. This part of the thesis examines the preparation proces, implementation of the terrain measurment, the data processing and, most importantly, the interpretation of the final results. Key words: archaeology, deserted medieval villages, geophysical methods,...
