Dr. William Griswold “Archaeology and Technology at Saratoga National Historical Park.”

In 2019 the National Park Service partnered with American Veterans Archaeological Recovery, American Battlefield Trust and Advanced Metal Detecting for the Archaeologist to undertake a study at the Barber Wheatfield, Saratoga National Historical Park where the second battle of Saratoga started during the Revolutionary War. This project collected LiDAR data from a drone, conducted a metal detector study, and collected gradiometric data from an ATV-towed rig. Team Lead Dr. William Griswold will share preliminary results of the project.
