Review Newcomers to earth resistance studies will be delighted that Armin Schmidt has distilled a huge body of historical and modern sources to provide a clear and unambiguous guide to the theoretical underpinning of the subject. While there are plenty of geophysical text books that cover some of the issues within this volume, none focus on the near surface as effectively. Experienced archaeological geophysicists will find many thoughtful insights that will open new areas of research and learning. For teachers and students alike, this volume will be indispensable.
(Chris Gaffney, University of Bradford, UK )

Earth Resistance for Archaeologists offers a comprehensive and up-to-date treatment of the subject from one of the world’s foremost teachers and practitioners. Beginning with basic concepts of electricity it develops the theory of earth resistance, examines how it can be measured in the ground with a variety of arrays, indicates how archaeological features are expressed and how they may be imaged in plan, in profile, or three-dimensionally, and gives a host of examples ranging from field case studies to recipes for data processing. Earth Resistance for Archaeologists offers a comprehensive and in-depth review suitable for beginners, who will benefit from its clear discussions, many illustrations, and example applications, and for the advanced student who can jump into theoretical details. This book is exactly what the increasing number of archaeologists who employ resistance surveys need to better understand what they are doing and why and to improve their craft to reach state-of-the-art practice.
