Story Maps, A New Public Archaeology Tool: Mill Springs Battlefield Case Study

Author(s): Philip B. Mink

Year: 2018

Summary

ESRI Story Maps are a new strategy for combining geographic information with text, images and multimedia content in an easily shareable web interface.  The technique is especially useful for presenting historic archaeology to the public, as archaeological and archival data can be juxtaposed to present a more complete story.  In this presentation we will exhibit the story map created for the Beech Grove area of the Mill Springs Battlefield and discuss its potential as a public archaeology tool.  Our story map combined archaeological data with audio content, images, maps, and text to create a unique learning experience for the general public.
