Electrical Resistivity Survey to Locate Buried Colonial Structures in the Santo Domingo’s Historic Complex, Panama

Abstract

Electrical resistivity tomography is a powerful tool for investigating hispanic structures in the tropic. This technique of geophysical prospecting was developed in one of the most important ruins that are part of the archaeological site of Panama Viejo: Santo Domingo’s complex. The prospection was carried out in three zones with the aim to detect buried archaeological structures linked to church and the convent. In all zones, we detected a set of strong electrical anomalies at shallow depths associated with debris from walls and fallen roofs, and deeper we detected high electrical anomalies linked to walls, pebble floors, stone pillars and footing.
