Within the framework of the Archaeological Expedition to Wad Ben Naga, a non-invasive, geophysical survey was conducted at the archaeological site of Wad Ben Naga, Sudan, in the course of the mission‘s fifteenth season. The objective of the survey was to explore selected parts of Central Wad Ben Naga, to map surface and subsurface structures. Almost 500 distinct anomalies were detected using a ten-sensor gradiometer array LEA MAX and interpreted in the context of the site’s development.
