Discovery Priory with Magnetometry

Magnetometry is a well-known tool when it comes to UXO detection. Another fascinating (and in Flanders also less familiar) field of application is archaeology. A few weeks ago we found the remains of this long before now disappeared brick wall. The wall used to enclose a small priory garden built in 1410. It was destroyed by the French in 1796, shortly before the onset of the Peasant’s War (Boerenkrijg) against the French occupation of the Southern Netherlands.
