Geoarchaeology Overview

According to the Soil Analysis Support System for Archaeology (SASSA), geoarchaeology involves the application of soil, sediment, geological, and geomorphological analytical techniques to address archaeological questions. Such techniques can be applied to soils, sediments, anthropogenic materials, and artifacts. Geoarchaeology has a strong overlap with dating, geophysical, and remote sensing techniques as well as with other environmental studies.
