To improve archaeological site studies one of the important aspects is to characterize the geophysical method response on it. To archeological survey it is important to detect the targets even before the excavation itself. In this project we will address the construction of a pseudo-archaeological site, which simulates actual sites found in the Zona da Mata Mineira – Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Such archaeological sites are characterized as indigenous and, many times, are ancient cemeteries. In order to simulate it as closely as possible, we use ceramic vases of various sizes, containing bones or just clay. So, the area can be surveyed by the geophysical methods like: GPR, magnetometers surveys and others, to obtain the geophysical signatures of those buried material.
