Archaeology at the Wood Lake Battlefield

Archaeological work to be completed at the Wood Lake Battlefield by Sigrid Arnott Consulting, LLC for the Wood Lake Battlefield Preservation Association will be the subject of a one-day public archaeology event to be held on the site September 12, 2015 from 1 to 5 pm.  The study plans to identify archaeological features, recover archaeological artifacts, and interpret the findings within the context of the larger Wood Lake Battlefield historic site.  The study will rely heavily on state-of-the-art non-invasive methods including: analysis of aerial laser scanning data to model terrain elements in 3-D, forensic analysis of ballistics, systematic metal detection and mapping of buried artifacts and features identified using subsurface geophysical methods.  During the event Dr. Douglas Scott will discuss conflict archaeology and demonstrations of the high-technology archaeological methods used during the survey will be conducted.  For additional information and directions follow this link.
