A Remote View

Just a quick heads-up to anyone interested in the Hamline Village History project. A geophysics survey team from Archaeo-Physics will be here on June 22nd to evaluate some of our potential excavation sites. They use a variety of high-tech equipment like ground penetrating radar, magnetometers, and electrical resistence meters to ‘see’ what’s buried underground. They can identify buried walls, burned areas, large concentrations of metal, and other anamolies in the soil. Ideally they’re going to tell us where to dig this fall, so I’m really excited about this work. Anyone interested in volunteering to help or just watching what happens is welcome to join us. Post a comment on the blog or email me and I’ll let everyone know where and when to meet.
