Archaeology at Iowaville, the 1765–1820 Báxoje (Ioway) Tribe Village on the Des Moines River (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Cynthia L. Peterson. Steven De Vore. Anton Till.

Iowaville (13VB124), a Báxoje village, housed up to 800 people in southeast Iowa from 1765–1820. Known to archaeologists and collectors for its remarkable surface and metal detector finds––beads, silver ornaments, a large faunal assemblage, and nested copper base-metal kettles containing fur and uncharred seeds––little was known about the site’s preservation or lack thereof. The 2010 fieldwork goal was to assess site integrity in this cultivated farm field. The National Park Service assisted...


Beyond Fort Walls: Geophysical and Archaeological Investigations of Fort Haldimand, Carleton Island, New York (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Taylor Napoleon. Alyssa Hyziak. Scott Rivas. Emily Falk. Ben Ford.

During the American Revolutionary War, Carleton Island was home to the British naval base Fort Haldimand. Located on the St. Lawrence River in upstate New York, the base served as an important connection between Québec and British interior forts. The Thousand Island Land Trust protects Fort Haldimand, but the area immediately outside the fort is privately owned. During June 2015, archaeologists from Indiana University of Pennsylvania implemented a variety of geophysical and archaeological...


Documenting an Iron Age Townscape at Busayra (Jordan) using Geophysical Survey Techniques (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Benjamin Porter. Stephanie Brown. Katie Simon. Andrew Wilson. Christine Markussen.

Located in southwest Jordan, Busayra has long been suspected of being the capital of the Iron Age polity of Edom. British excavations in the 1970s revealed monumental buildings, fortifications, and domestic residences on Busayra’s acropolis that confirms the settlement’s stature as an administrative center. Despite this impressive evidence, little else is known about the town’s design. In order to further investigate Busayra’s sub-surface features, the authors conducted a geophysical survey...

Lawrenz Rising: Preliminary Assessment of a Site Development Chronology for a Mississippian Village in West-Central Illinois (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Matthew Pike. Jeremy J. Wilson. G. William Monaghan. Edward W. Herrmann.

Recent investigations at Lawrenz Gun Club (11Cs4), a palisaded Mississippian village and earthwork complex in the central Illinois River valley, highlight the importance of integrating landscape-scaled geophysical survey with site formation processes to develop chronologies derived from diverse archaeological and geoarchaeological investigations. A comprehensive geophysical survey of the fortified village complex and surrounding landscape revealed extensive habitation beyond the site palisade....


Looking for the La Bahia at Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site in Anderson, Grimes County, Texas (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ruth Mathews.

The La Bahia was believed to have passed in front of the Inn. Investigations never located the illusive trace. Plans to expand the parking lot created an opportunity to look on the northeast side; the backdoor to the Inn and dining room. Background research revealed that the Fanthorp’s residence was at the front of the Inn. If travelers departed the stagecoach at the front door they would have traipsed through the Fanthorps living space to get to the dining area. While many guests stayed at the...

Non-Invasive Documentation of Burial Mounds and Historic Earthworks from the Dakota Heartland: A Combined Approach Utilizing LiDAR and Shallow Subsurface Geophysical Methods. (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only David Maki. Sigrid Arnott.

Recent collaboration between archaeologists, geophysicists, tribes, and preservationists has improved documentation and preservation of precontact and historic earthworks using non-invasive methods.  The availability of LiDAR data has revolutionized preservation efforts in the historic Dakota homeland by allowing us to identify and document cemeteries over large areas.  At the site-specific scale, aerial LiDAR imaging is utilized in conjunction with subsurface geophysical imaging of earthworks...


Parker's Revenge - a Running Battle: First Day of the Revolutionary War, Minute Man National Historical Park (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Meg Watters.

April 19, 1775, at the border of Lexington and Lincoln in Massachusetts, Captain John Parker and the Lexington Militia met the British Regular troops as they retreated to Boston following the exchange of fire that marked the start of the Revolutionary War at Concord’s North Bridge.  The Parker’s Revenge Project seeks to determine the location of the Parker’s Revenge battle through an innovative approach to funding, research, and public engagement.  Funded by the Friends of the Minute Man...
