SUMO’s Dr John Gater recently ventured on holiday to the Mediterranean, a short break away from Yorkshire and Real Ale. Whilst wandering around the local archaeological remains John noticed the abundance of highly visible utility services. Features that would typically require specialised survey equipment to identify, were in plain sight. In many instances, they were actually above the ground.
Below, we take a look at some of the photographs captured during John’s travels.
Here in the UK, we need to employ sophisticated survey equipment for the location of utility services. Whether it’s the use of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) equipment or alternative survey techniques for underground mapping; we think it looks much easier to find them in the Mediterranean!
