This thesis analyzes the results of the magnetic survey conducted at the prehistoric mound of Kinet Höyük, on the Issos Plain (Hatay, Turkey), and those of the test excavations, which were conducted according to this geophysical survey. The main focus of this study is to compare the magnetometer survey results with the data from the test excavations to verify how proficient this method is for revealing the subsurface features of Kinet Höyük and its surrounding area. This comparison should allow us to test the applicability of these kinds of methods for archaeology.
