By September 2013 four eight-channel fluxgate magnetometer arrays towed by Quad bikes have been developed and applied within the large-scale case study areas.
Using sample spacing of 25 cm cross-line and 10 cm in-line, daily coverage rates of over 20 hectares have been achieved. Thorough testing and development now allow the reliable use of magnetometry for high-resolution archaeological prospection at very large scales. This massive increase in data acquisition efficiency requires the formulation of best practice guides and standardized maintenance routines as well as a dedicated hardware service on standby. Continuous development and improvement of the data acquisition software and navigation solutions were fundamental for the success of this development.
