5. CONCLUSIONS

Although many fundamental techniques were developed for commercial use by the oil and mineral industries in the US, development in the UK was largely due to interest in finding and documenting archaeological remains. Emerging geophysical principles were applied to archaeological interests, with such success that techniques and instruments first developed for archaeological surveys are now used in a range of industries, from engineering to environment, hydrology and forensics.
