Editorial Reviews

Review

The book provides a quality overview of how GPR techniques are relevant to landscape reconstruction in an archaeological context. The objectives, findings, and conclusions are presented clearly. . . Ground-Penetrating Radar for Archaeology presents a wide range of information that offers the reader a nearly complete picture of the role that GPR and geophysics can play in archaeology. . . This book should help to dispel some of the myths surrounding GPR and illustrate when and where it can help to non-destructively map archaeological landscapes.
(Canadian Journal of Archaeology)

Conyers provides a balanced an nuanced understanding of both the strengths and weaknesses of the method. This book is an excellent introduction to the method for new practitioners and the archaeological community in general and it should increase the use of this very important archaeological technique. (Journal of Field Archaeology)

This book is a wonderful resource for archaeologists studying the GPR technique. (Historical Archaeology)

Conyers' book provides a general understanding of ground penetration radar (GPR) and its application to archeology. It is not about specific equipment or data analysis programs or about planning geophysical surveys. Conyers focuses instead on broad principles and generalized equipment, operations, and interpretation, and describes the in non- or minimally mathematical terms, minimizing the use of special language....The 22 pages of references Conyers includes are truly valuable. They include not only references that this reviewer has used to study and teach geophysics for archeology for years, but also previously unknown references.
(Industrial Archeology)

About the Author

Lawrence B. Conyers presently teaches in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Denver and conducts geophysical research at archaeological sites throughout the world. He is coauthor of Ground-Penetrating Radar: An Introduction for Archaeologists.

By Stephen Hammack on March 9, 2008
Format: Paperback
I bought this book to familiarize myself with how GPR works in advance of performing an archaeological study of two historic cemeteries in Middle Georgia. It was a great introduction to the subject, and is written for the educated reader in largely laymen's terms. There is a wonderful illustration of how GPR works in one of the early chapters. I recommend this book to anyone using remote sensing on a professional project, especially if you are not a geophysicist yourself.

Excellent book describing the procedures and operations of Ground Penetrating Radar for people that may benefit from the technology. As a surveyor requiring the location of underground features, I found the book extremely useful in understanding the proper methods of using the equipment to obtain the results needed. The language is relatively easy to comprehend and the presentation balanced and easily understood. I would highly recommend this book to anyone desirous of or involved in the knowledge of subsurface studies and analysis.

A little more technical than his Interpreting book but you will need this background to understand how GPR works.
