Get out and walk: A reflection on a walking survey conducted in the Fleet River Valley, Kirkcudbrightshire, Dumfries and Galloway Scotland. (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Christine Broughton Anderson.

Information technologies such as remote sensing and geographic information systems have and are changing the way we view archaeological sites.  Historical archaeologists and more specifically those who work in remote, rural, and/or areas of continued agricultural production are finding some of these technologies invaluable.  However, I still believe that a good old walking survey armed with a paper map and compass (and GPS and digital camera) is, for me, the best way to get a handle on what or...


Hidden Along the Waterfront: Overview of Site 44AX0229 (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only John Mullen.

Improvements to the Alexandria waterfront began soon after the town was established in 1749.  By 1798, the tidal flats along the Potomac River had been infilled and the new shoreline was dominated by wharves and warehouses.  Archeological excavations at the Hotel Indigo site along the orginal shoreline, revealed evidence of this engineered infilling: the remnants of a bulkhead wharf and a late-18th century ship that were used as a framework to create new land. The foundations of one of the...
