Loring-Greenough House North Yard Archaeogeophysics (2010)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Christa Beranek. John W. Schoenfelder. Kathryn A. Catlin. John Steinberg.

Three major anomalies were identified. These anomalies have not been ground truthed, but they appear to be archaeological features. First, we suggest that there is a builders trench just north of the house. Second, we suggest that there could be...
