Geophysical prospection of Iron Age coastal sites in Scandinavia known from metal detecting assemblages – new case studies from the PastCoast-project

Geophysical surveying of sites known from metal detecting shows a varying spatial relationship between the finds material and the geophysical information. The survey results of two case studies indicate that coastal erosion has removed parts of the archaeological site at Langelands gaarde. The Austråt manor case study reveal a large number of archaeological features, and a strong spatial correlation between the geophysical observations and metal detecting objects.
