Summary: The Cubujuquí archaeological site was surveyed using electrical resistivity and magnetometry geophysical methods in order to investigate the results of these methods over a paved causeway that had been discovered during previous investigations. Trials made with both methods showed that electrical resistivity can produce positive information about an archaeological feature while the magnetometer did not produce any useful information from an archaeological point-of-view. Although the magnetometer showed its ineffectiveness at this site, the investigation was successful in showing that geophysical methods can play an important role in archaeological research projects in the preliminary survey and the planning of excavation units.
