Stoddartsville Archaeology Results

Laura Sherrod - 2015

The vertical magnetic gradient map (right) was produced to illustrate zones of magnetic variation.  Several linear magnetic features were identified and may be investigated by the archaeologists in subsequent field seasons. Surface features such as driveway and decorative boulders (as in the south central portion of the survey block) and electrical lines (south west corner) may have masked signals from subsurface sources. 

GPR data were used to pinpoint discrete objects in the subsurface.  Hyperbolic reflections such as those shown below may indicate unmarked burails.
