History of the Symposium

The Symposium on Archaeological Prospection from 1961 until 1968

During the early years the symposium was focused exclusively on archaeological prospection using geophysical methods. After a first meeting in London in 1961 during the following years the symposium was organized at the Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art (RLAHA) at the University of Oxford. It was initially designed as a one-day user meeting for archaeologists using proton gradiometers for prospection. The numbering was defined by I. Scollar in 1978.
