Geophysics and Historical Archaeology: A Collaboration Between Two Departments

Summary

In June and July of 2015, Industrial Archaeologists from Michigan Technological University working with MTU's geophyics field school conducted field work that consisted of the use of ground penetrating radar, magnetometry, resistivity testing, and LIDAR, to help identify the location of features associated with the earliest African American pioneers of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. This poster details the process and discusses the findings.
