SILCHESTER ROMAN TOWN, HAMPSHIRE: REPORT ON GROUND PENETRATING RADAR SURVEY, MARCH 2000
Author(s): Neil Linford
A trial Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) survey was conducted over a previously excavated Romano-Celtic temple and its surroundings in the central area of Silchester Roman Town (Calleva Atrebatum), Hampshire. Amplitude time slices created from the GPR data revealed a plethora of anomalies related to the original street pattern, several buildings, and the remains of the temple. In addition, the GPR data allows the apparent vertical stratigraphy of the anomalies to be estimated and indicates the varying, near-surface preservation of the temple. The GPR data further complements information on the site recovered through excavation, aerial photography, and a more extensive magnetometer survey.
