Gamma-Ray Astronomy

Conference paper


In this paper, I present a summary of the status of γ-ray astronomy in the very high energy band (E > 50GeV), as of early 2007. It covers a selection of results obtained from observations made by ground-based detectors using the atmospheric Cherenkov or air shower techniques, together with short descriptions of some of the present and future experiments.
