Combined geophysical prospection of kurgans on the Uzun Rama plateau in the Caucasus, Azerbaijan: first results

In November 2021, a geophysical prospection using magnetics, electromagnetics, and ground penetrating radar, as well as a surface archaeological survey and aerial photography were conducted in the kurgan area on the Uzun-Rama plateau in central Azerbaijan. These non-destructive investigations aim to obtain information on the morphology, structure and spatial distribution of the urgans in order to classify them according to various features. The preliminary results show that increased magnetic field intensity, increased electrical conductivity, and increased reflection energy in the GPR are observed in the top region of the kurgans, which contain information about the burial chamber.
