Abstract

Magnetic and electrical resistivity tomography geophysical techniques were integrated to locate subsurface archaeological materials. The magnetic survey comprises seven profiles in N-S and E-W direction with station interval of 0.5 m. [Orthogonal set of] 2D electrical resistivity tomography data consisting of four parallel and three perpendicular profiles were collected using Wenner array with electrode spacing ranging from 0.5 – 3.0 m. Trial pits carried out at regions of high total magnetic intensity and model resistivity yield burnt pipes “TUYERE”, iron slag, iron smelting, and pottery fragments.
