The Office of State Archaeology will host speakers each month throughout the year on the many great aspects of archaeology. Topics will center on recent investigation or research conducted in North Carolina. All lectures are free and open to the public. Join us for these fascinating events!

Upcoming lectures:


Applying Archaeological Geophysics in the 21st Century: Examples from the Southeastern United States

Geophysical techniques are used to make maps of buried archaeological features. These techniques can give archaeologists vast amounts of intra-site spatial data without costly, time-consuming, and inherently destructive excavations. Please join us as Sarah Lowry of New South Associates outlines the most common archaeological geophysics instruments and provides case studies showing their use at different archaeological sites in the Southeastern United States. Examples will include Mississippian villages, historic sites, battlefields, and cemeteries and will focus on the application of geophysics in cultural resource management.

Presented by Sarah Lowry, New South Associates, Inc.
