1 P077 LARGE-SCALE RESISTIVITY AND MAGNETIC SUMMARY The aim of this study is to investigate an archaeological site by large-scale resistivity method and then to compare the results with the conventional large-scale magnetics. The resistivity data were collected in 3-D manner by pole-pole configuration using multi-channel measuring technique. The magnetic data were acquired by gradient technique using an FM-36 gradiometer. Then the resistivity data were inverted by using the smoothness-constrained and robust algorithms. The magnetic and resistivity data quietly supported each other. In addition archaeological excavations verified the results of large-scale geophysical surveys. Keywords: archaeology large-scale geophysics magnetic resistivity inversion
