Thornton-le-Street History Group – RTTP is delighted that James Lyall will lead a one hour webinar about geophysical survey for community archaeology groups.

The webinar will look at how local and community archaeology groups can carry out geophysical surveys, and address how we can define whether these were successful. Also, we will look at how easy (or not!!) it is to find Roman roads using these techniques.

James Lyall is an archaeologist and geophysical surveyor (currently the director of, and has been working in Yorkshire since 1989. He conducted his first geophysical survey in 1993 and has done over 1600 hectares of magnetometer survey in North and East Yorkshire over the last 27 years. He has worked with a number of local archaeological societies and groups, carrying out both excavations and geophysics training with them.
