GPR is a near-surface geophysical technique that can provide three-dimensional maps and other images of buried archaeological features and associated stratigraphy in a precise way. This revised edition provides the basics of the physics, chemistry, geology, and archaeology in a clear fashion, unburdened by complex equations or theory.

Lawrence Conyers is the author of five books on GPR, and more than forty-five peer reviewed journal articles. He was one of the first to develop GPR techniques for both archaeology and geological applications starting in the late 1980s and has been on the forefront of using these methods to find, map and understand buried sites around the world. He was also instrumental in developing software for imaging the ground, with hundreds of software users around the world. His specialty is GPR, and recently the integration of GPR results with magnetic gradiometer data. He began his academic career at the University of Denver, Colorado in 1995, specializing in using geophysics for mapping buried archaeological sites. The last 25 years of his research has taken him to more than 65 countries around the world on all inhabited continents.
