Archaeological Prospection

Usually non-intrusive, archaeological prospection includes a set of actions that aim to characterize, in terms of heritage, a certain area in a non-invasive way. Its objective is to minimize impacts on any archaeological heritage, being carried out prior to the final phase of a project or an actual intervention. 

Archaeological prospection follows a phased process whose completion provides an in-depth knowledge of the area in question. This set of actions may include bibliographical and documentary research, cartographic and aerial photography analysis, relocation of field data and selective or systematic prospecting. 

Selective prospection implies the respective guidance in accordance with the preliminary identification of areas of greater potential, while systematic prospection, given its exhaustive nature, covers the entire area under analysis.
