bose (third-person singular simple present boses, present participle bosing, simple past and past participle bosed)

  1. (usually archaeology) To strike the ground with an object in order to determine, from the resulting sounds, what lies underground.
    • 1974, Martin Jim Aitken, Physics and archaeology:
      This criticism applies also to bosing in which the ground is thumped with a heavy rammer; over filled-in pits, tombs, [] Bosing is successful where the top-soil is thin and firm, with an unstratified rock such as chalk beneath.
