Today we were working to the south of the hedge which protrudes into the “theatre field”. It is quite a slope in that part of the field, and hard work to push the GPR up the slope! The mag completed most of the partials along the hedge line and a block of grids to make an almost-tidy looking survey.
It is now quite a walk to the survey area! Looking at the area surveyed in more detail today we can see the building to which I referred yesterday (Insula XXVI, building 2, monument 445). We had, in fact, clipped it in one of yesterday’s grids. This looks like quite a grand house on the hill overlooking the town.
The GPR slices show this building very nicely.
The apse on the NE wing which was seen on the aerial photograph can be faintly seen in the second time slice (14-18ns) but is not very clear. The back range is very clear, however. I wonder what the square block is in the room which can be seen clearly in the18-22ns time slice?
To enable comparison between the mag and the GPR I have overlain the third slice on the mag data.
When I have time to work on the data more, I should be able to enhance these images somewhat.
Tomorrow we keep heading south towards the cottages.
