Archaeological Geophysics for Ephemeral Human Occupations: Focusing on the Small-Scalecombines technological advances in near-surface geophysics with recent archaeological scholarship and underlying archaeological premises to provide a practical manual for guiding archaeo-geophysical research design. By proposing the amelioration of communication gaps between traditional and geophysical archaeologists, this book will foment dialogue and participate in bringing about new ways of thinking anthropologically about archaeological geophysics, especially in relation to prehistoric open-air ephemeral sites. Offering a way to begin a dialogue between archaeology and geophysics,Archaeological Geophysics for Ephemeral Human Occupationsis an important reference for practicing professionals, instructors, and students in geophysics and anthropology/archaeology, as well as geology.



  • Serves as a practical manual for guiding archaeo-geophysical research design
  • Bridges the communication gap between traditional and geophysical archaeologists to contribute to new ways of thinking anthropologically about archaeological geophysics
  • Provides a focus on prehistoric open-air ephemeral sites, which are often underrepresented
  • Offers an important reference for practicing professionals, instructors, and students in geophysics and anthropology/archaeology, as well as geology
Jason Thompson is an instructor at Ashford University, American Public University, and Rutgers university, as well as dissertation chair, committee member, and associate faculty at University of Phoenix.
