By Philip Verhagen

Dutch archaeology has skilled profound alterations lately. This has ended in an expanding use of archaeological predictive modelling, a method that makes use of information regarding the positioning of identified early human settlements to foretell the place extra settlements can have been situated. Case stories in Archaeological Predictive Modelling is the fabricated from a decade of labor through Philip Verhagen as a consultant in geographical details structures at RAAP Archeologisch Adviesbureau BV, one of many best enterprises within the box; the case stories offered the following supply an outline of the sphere and element to capability destiny components of study.

Low ps/pa values are observed for the resistant and intermediate rocks. However, in the surveyed zones the position of the loess formations is less dominant. When including 53 CHAPTER 3 the non-visible sites in the sample, the recent alluvial fans, terraces and river beds become much more important, largely at the expense of the loess formations and colluvial deposits. This again illustrates the importance of including these sites in the analysis, even when working with small samples. 11). Both maximum Kj and gain values are variable.

The last campaign included over 50% of Gaize. 4). Apart from that, it was decided to perform a field check to see if the geological maps used were accurate enough for the predictive modeling. , 1998) confirmed that the quality of the geological maps is adequate for most of the area, with two notable exceptions. Firstly, where outcrops of geological formations have a limited extent, they are not always mapped. In one particular case a kiln site was found close to a pocket of sables verts that was not depicted on the map, and it can be expected that similar locations exist in the area, especially near valley bottoms.
