National Park Service’s 2008 Archaeological Prospection Workshop

The National Park Service’s 2008 workshop on archaeological prospection techniques entitled Current Archaeological Prospection Advances for Non-Destructive Investigations in the 21st Century will be held May 19-23, 2008, at the Kelly Inn, Fargo, North Dakota. Lodging will be at the Best Western Kelly Inn with the meeting room at O’Kelly Event Center at the Kelly Inn. The field exercises will take place at the Biesterfeldt Site (a protohistoric village site on the Sheyenne River). Co-sponsors for the workshop include the National Park Service, the Archaeological Conservancy, Minnesota State University-Moorhead, and the State Historical Society of North Dakota. This will be the eighteenth year of the workshop dedicated to the use of geophysical, aerial photography, and other remote sensing methods as they apply to the identification, evaluation, conservation, and protection of archaeological resources across this Nation. The workshop will present lectures on the theory of operation, methodology, processing, and interpretation with on-hands use of the equipment in the field. The workshop this year will have a special focus on the soil magnetism and on the effects of plowing on geophysical signatures and site integrity.

There is a tuition charge of $475.00. Application forms are available on the Midwest Archeological Center’s web page. For further information, please contact Steven L.
