The paper presents the opportunities of archaeological applications of the geoelectric geophysical methods. The electrical conductivity properties of buried archaeological objects (wall relics, roads, channels, graves, metal objects, etc.) measurably differ from the electrical conductivity properties of soils and rocks covering archaeological objects. So these archaeological objects are detectable with geoelectric measurements performed on the surface of the Earth.The paper outlines the relation between the electrical parameters of individual archaeological objects and the medium covering them; and it supports the archaeological adaptability of geoelectric methods with the presentation of the results of field measurements.
