On Behalf of: Paul Linford and Louise Martin
Two day meetings: Archaeological Geophysics and Environmental Forensics
Venue: Geological Society of London, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London
Dates: 15th and 16th December 2010
15 DECEMBER 2010: RECENT WORK IN ARCHAEOLOGICAL GEOPHYSICS Shallow
geophysical techniques are now a well established tool for the evaluation
of archaeological sites, from their initial discovery to subsequent
interpretation and management. This will be the ninth in a succession of
biennial meetings in which contributors 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 and those in academia
to take advantage of recent research and developments.

16 DECEMBER 2010: ENVIRONMENTAL FORENSICS This multidisciplinary meeting
will capture shared interests between the geological, environmental
science, engineering, geotechnical, mining and archaeological communities
in assessing the impact of changes to the environment that may result
in legal proceedings. Sessions will include geophysics, remote sensing,
geology, hydrogeology, geochemistry, isotope geochemistry.
