Today different geophysical methods are often applied in related fields of science. Thus application of geophysics in archeological exploration has actually separated into an individual branch characterized by specific methods of observations and data interpretation. Search and identification of archeological objects, especially those not distinguished in the relief of the daylight surface, is the issue of the day. Despite the fact that application of geophysical methods in archeology is half-century old, the surveyors are adding new effective methods and technologies to their stock. First of all we should mention GPR-position. However, it is good to remember well-behaved methods of resistance and magnetic exploration known since the middle of the last century. Russia as the rest of the world is currently favoring an integrated approach involving various geophysical methods which are jointly used for exploration of archeological monuments. Integration allows significant expansion of the circle of the tasks solved and increase in reliability of the results. In this report the authors intend to turn the searchlight on the matters related to geophysical mapping and data processing, and to demonstrate some results obtained during exploration of the archeological objects.
