Potential of deep learning segmentation for the extraction of archaeological features from historical map series.

Archaeol Prospect 2021 Apr-Jun;28(2):187-199. Epub 2021 Jan 26.

Department of Archaeology University of Cambridge Downing Street Cambridge CB2 3DZ UK.

Historical maps present a unique depiction of past landscapes, providing evidence for a wide range of information such as settlement distribution, past land use, natural resources, transport networks, toponymy and other natural and cultural data within an explicitly spatial context. Maps produced before the expansion of large-scale mechanized agriculture reflect a landscape that is lost today. Of particular interest to us is the great quantity of archaeologically relevant information that these maps recorded, both deliberately and incidentally. Read More

LiDAR-guided Archaeological Survey of a Mediterranean Landscape: Lessons from the Ancient Greek Polis of Kolophon (Ionia, Western Anatolia).

Archaeol Prospect 2017 Oct-Dec;24(4):311-333. Epub 2017 Apr 25.

Department of Classical Archaeology University of Vienna Franz-Klein Gasse 1 1190 Vienna Austria.

In 2013, an airborne laser scan survey was conducted in the territory of the Ionian city of Kolophon near the western coast of modern Turkey as part of an archaeological survey project carried out by the Mimar Sinan University of Istanbul (Turkey) and the University of Vienna (Austria). Several light detection and ranging (LiDAR) studies have been carried out in the temperate climate zones of Europe, but only a few in Mediterranean landscapes. Our study is based on the first LiDAR survey carried out for an archaeological purpose in Turkey and one of the first in the Mediterranean that have been planned, measured and filtered especially for archaeological research questions.

Geomagnetic and Geoelectric Prospection on a Roman Iron Production Facility in Hüttenberg, Austria

Archaeol Prospect 2011 12;18(2):149-158. Epub 2011 May 12.

Quaringasse 22/3/7, A-1100 Wien, Austria.

Geophysical prospection has been applied in the Hüttenberg area (Carinthia, Austria), where important parts of the Roman iron production in the province of Noricum between the first century bc and the fourth century ad are located. A combination of geomagnetic, geoelectric and electromagnetic measurements at different scales yielded information about the extent of the industrial complex and the location of yet undiscovered subsurface monuments in the surrounding area of the Semlach-Eisner archaeological site. The vertical and lateral extension of a slag deposit from the smelting activities could be determined by means of geomagnetic mapping and multi-electrode geoelectric profiles. Read More
