Archaeological Prospection

Usually non-intrusive, archaeological prospecting includes a set of actions that aim to characterize in terms of heritage a specific area in a non-invasive way. Its goal is to minimize impacts on any archaeological heritage and occurs before the final phase of a project or an intervention.

This prospecting 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 prospecting implies guidance according to the preliminary identification of areas of great potential, while systematic prospecting, given its exhaustive nature, covers the entire area under analysis.
