SUMO Geophysics for Archaeological and Engineering


With several decades of experience in geophysics for archaeology and engineering, SUMO Geophysics was created in January 2017, from the merger of Stratascan Limited and GSB Prospection Limited, both of which companies had traded as valued members of the SUMO Group for many years. 


Used to working to tight schedules and meeting deadlines, SUMO Geophysics prides itself on being the largest provider of professional geophysics in the UK.


With a background in both archaeology and civil engineering, SUMO Geophysics provides near-surface geophysical surveys to both archaeological and planning consultants; plus the geotechnical, civil engineering, water and environmental industries.  It does this by utilising the latest non-invasive ground characterisation techniques, which provide a rapid, cost-effective method of evaluating below ground features, without excavation.
