BHAS Geophysics

Pete Tolhurst is the leader of the geophysics and surveying Team. In December a small survey of part of Preston Park, Brighton was conducted in conjunction with Brighton University. The university conducted a major magnetometry survey over most of the park. BHAS conducted resistivity surveying in parts of the park deemed inaccessible for magnetometry.

New surveying is being planned for this season. These projects include surveying a field close to Ovingdean that has produced both Medieval and Roman finds, a survey on Beacon Hill at Rottingdean focused on a Neolithic long barrow and at Patcham to examine earthworks which may be part of a 'Celtic' field system. BHAS are also planning to return to Hempstead Farm, near Uckfield, for more investigations into that medieval landscape. All volunteers are welcome, whatever theor experience. All training will be given.
