Big Mound - Big Data: Multi-frequency GPR investigation of King Battus` Mound, Cyrene, Libya
Ground Penetrating Radar surveys were undertaken at Diocletian’s Palace in the World Heritage Site of Split and in the Cetina Valley, Croatia. Using 100, 200 & 500MHz antennas, data were collected as 3D data cubes and along individual transects. The data cubes provided new archaeological insights into the building history of Diocletian’s Palace and clearer imaging and depth information of features than would have resulted from magnetometer surveys alone. High and low frequency antennas detected different features (archaeological remains vs. palaeochannels) and numerical data combination would not have significantly improved the results.
