Bringing Visitors to State Historic Sites: Remote Sensing and Hands-on Research

Author(s): Linda Stine

Year: 2015


North Carolina’s Department of Cultural Resources is pressed by state legislators to justify keeping Historic Site’s properties open, and its Office of State Archaeology (OSA) staff gainfully employed. The state university system has also seen its share of cuts. By pooling research interests and resources, OSA and University of North Carolina Greensboro archaeologists and geography professors and students could highlight potential below ground features and excavate at two sites. The project included the Historic Sites Division leadership and was open to an interested public. Regional multi-media emphasized the importance of Historic Sites for research, education, public enjoyment, and tourism.
