Magnetic prospection is well known as a reliable geophysical method supporting the archaeological surveys. However, common use in the archaeology community is too often limited to the mere mapping of sampled data. We show that a much more complete characterization of the source bodies is possible in archaeogeophysics, thanks to new technical solutions performing a better interpretation of the magnetic anomalies. We must not limit to optimize localization of the archaeological findings by signal enhancement, thanks to refined techniques such as boundary analysis, inversion and multiscale approach, which may provide a 3D high-resolution imaging of the sources.
