The use of scientific instruments to analyse artefacts and residues, botanical and fauna material or map subsurface cultural heritage features with advance spatial technologies such as a total station or near-surface geophysical techniques is becoming an increasingly important component in the field of archaeology and anthropology. More specifially as these tools have the ability to help us understand past human behaviour. The UQCHU has access to a suite of equipment including 3D object scanners and 3D printers, light microscopes, Differential GPS, Nikon total stations with Survey Pro software and four geophysical instruments including a Geophysical Survey System Inc. (GSSI) SIR-3000 ground-penetrating radar, a Bartington Instruments 601 Fluxgate gradiometer, a GSSI Electromagnetic Induction Profiler and a Geoscan RM15 Resistance Meter.
