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

Shawn Patch shows how GPR is collected
Event Description:

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.
