Earth Resistance Tomography (ERT) is a geophysical prospecting technique that has the capacity to model subsurface
sediments. This technique is applied at the Cave near Rovinjsko Selo 1 site which is in the Lim Channel, Croatia. ERT
is used as a means for positively identifying a previous excavation trench location within site which, in turn, informs the
excavation planning process. The potential benefits of this technique are discussed for future excavation planning efforts
at Romuald’s Cave, another cave site location in the Lim Channel. While beneficial in this study, the technique’s utility
will vary in other locations according to site conditions, amount of previous excavation activities, and age of earlier excavation
activities which affects both the geophysical survey design and applicability of ERT to the specific site environment.
