Graveyard Survey

The survey crew works on a cold January morning

"The geophysical survey did not find conclusive evidence for a mass burial, as hypothesized by local legend. However, there is one potential area within the survey block that may contain unmarked burials and should be confirmed via ground truthing. . ." — Molly Cannon, Ph.D.

Ground penetrating radar was used to visualize the surfaces throughout the area, including below ground. Magnetic gradiometry produced a dense dataset to detect small subsurface features. The use of two different instruments helped researched more accurately identify what they found.
