Quickscan

A quickscan is a desk based assessment that may also be carried out in combination with a small scale coring survey. The coring survey can quickly determine at which level archaeology can be found and how disturbed the ground is, the goal being to estimate, at an early stage, in how far and in what manner archaeological investigation is necessary before development work begins. This is part of the risk analysis.

The quickscan does not form part of an Archaeological Field Inventorization.
