"Exploring North Carolina's Archaeological Heritage through
Remote Sensing and Geophysics"

The North Carolina Office of State Archaeology in association with the North Carolina Museum of History, and the United States Forest Service, is hosting a public presentation to discuss the application and relevance of using Remote Sensing to explore North Carolina's buried history. The last several years have witnessed an increase in the use of geophysical remote sensing as "non-invasive" methods to recover data that in the past were unavailable to archaeologists. The presentations will discuss how the application of ground penetrating radar (GPR), magnetometers, and metal detecting are used to locate and map subsurface natural and cultural features. Several archaeological sites in North Carolina are discussed in detail using information obtained from the application of these methodologies. These methods and techniques represent a new frontier in archaeological research.
