Summary

Between March 26 and March 30, the author directed resistance geophysical surveys at the Elkhorn Tavern and the LeetolNI1 site within Pea Ridge National Military Park, Arkansas (PERI). The research was performed as part of a broader inventory of the cultural resources of PERI. The goal of the resistance surveys at PERI was to attempt to locate various structural elements and features of the properties that relate to the Civil War era in a non-destructive manner. At each surveyed area, soil resistance anomalies possibly the result of cultural activity are identified. Whether the anomalies are the result of cultural activity can only be determined through future archeological testing of the anomalies.
