The Geophysical Survey of North Saqqara, 2001–7

The square is then set for detailed magnetic survey by Fluxgate gradiometer. A considerable number of the structures in the Saqqara necropolis are composed of mud brick. Geophysical surveyors are fortunate that mud brick retains magnetic properties that contrast greatly with those of the overlying sand and limestone debris.
