Abstract
The presence of modern structures and infrastructures is relevant if you want to plan an archaeological or cultural heritage project in a populated area (e.g., cities and countryside). Both natural and manmade objects “hidden” in the subsurface (like tree roots, electrical cables, pipelines, tunnels, etc.) can interfere in preservation of buried heritage. The main advantage of the remote sensing (RS) approach is the application of different non-destructive techniques (NDTs) to obtain the best result, in terms of both resolution and accuracy, without digging. One of these NDTs, i.e., the Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) method, is used in this paper. The examples shown here demonstrate not only that the use of the GPR technique, as a remote sensor, represents an effective and non-destructive methodology for discovering, recovering, and understanding archeological data but also it can be applied to better understand the evolution of the ancient Past through the development of the Present.
