GPR Case Study 1 – Archaeology in Egypt


Our Seeker SPR 500 System recently played a vital role in helping the Scottish Egyptian Archaeological Trust explore the historical Saqqara Necropolis. The 500 MHz antenna with controller was pulled across the Saqqara dig site on the edge of the Sahara Desert in a 0.5 meter grid pattern. Images produced by the Seeker SPR 500 allowed archaeologists to detect buried ruins.

The Saqqara Necropolis is located on the west bank of the Nile River in Egypt. It is the burial site of some of the most important figures in Egyptian history and is the location of the first pyramid, the Step Pyramid of King Djoser. The Saqqara Necropolis holds the tomb of this pyramid’s architect, Imhotep. The exact location of Imhotep’s tomb is still unknown, but archaeologists continue to find evidence that it is close by. Thousands of discoveries could still be made before all is said and done. We are thrilled that our Seeker SPR 500 technology is part of these exciting excavations.
