The Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research (NIKU), the technology company AutoAgri, and Guideline Geo/MALÅ, started working on a motorized, self-driving geo-radar vehicle.
The project aims to streamline archaeological surveys on cultivated land.
The utilization of geo-radar technology to discover cultural monuments underground has proven to be an effective method, and the NIKU has worked continuously on developing this research method in the field, along with several partners, over the past ten years.
Among other finds, geo-radar surveys led to discoveries of burial mounds, Viking ships, longhouses, and other structures from the Iron Age and Viking Age.
