General:
     Applying the geophysical methods in historical sites , as it is named archaeogeophysics is in a very common place all around the world Mostly before excavation the geophysical maps arc prepared from the mentioned sites which helps archaeologist and leads the excavation in correct direction . causes saving time and expense and also appearing the buried objects without damaging them . In archaeological site of Ansman which is near a village by the same name around Natanz we encounter the remained parts of furnaces and cruisihles,slag masses and pottery pieces. the volume and spreading of remained parts reveals the importance of the region in smelting metals with the oldness of 6000 years
Regarding the existence and plenty amount of buried objects . like pottery. bricks and furnaces for using the property of Termoremaneni Magnetization to reveal these buried objects. in three parts of this region the magnetic method in two form of total field intensity and vertical gradient are used . The obtained results from these surveys are satisfactory and resulted anomaly from furnaces and other burned masses can he seen in prepared maps.
