Annually NCPTT hosts “Prospection in Depth,” an integrated, holistic professional development workshop fusing GIS, GPS, and geophysical prospection. What is unique about the course is that it emphasizes the testing of select remotely-sensed phenomena within a robust interpretive context. The latter is possible through annual partnerships with ongoing, long-term research projects. This arrangement creates three unique benefits for workshop participants, in that they:
- see what archaeological and natural realities structure geophysical data;
- contribute directly to the interpretation of the site; and therefore
- interact on a level playing field as researchers, rather than passive student learners.
The webpages you see here add another dimension to the course. Here you can continue to explore the relationship between subsurface remains and the geophysical signals they represent
