National Park Service's 2014 Archaeological Prospection Workshop

*The National Park Service's 2014 workshop on archaeological prospection
techniques entitled Current Archaeological Prospection Advances for
Non-Destructive Investigations in the 21st Century *will be held May 19-23,
2014, at *Aztalan State Park** in *Jefferson County, Wisconsin.  Lodging
and lectures will be at the Comfort Suites in Johnson Creek, Wisconsin.
The field exercises will take place at Aztalan State Park.  Aztalan State
Park is a National Historic Landmark and contains one of Wisconsin's most
important archaeological sites.  It showcases an ancient
Middle-Mississippian village that thrived between A.D. 1000 and 1300.  The
people who settled Aztalan built large, flat-topped pyramidal mounds and a
stockade around their village.  Portions of the stockade and two mounds
have been reconstructed in the park.  Co-sponsors for the workshop include
the National Park Service's Midwest Archeological Center, the Aztalan State
Park, and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.  This will be the
twenty-fourth 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.  There is a registration charge
of $475.00.  Application forms are available on the Midwest Archeological
Center's web page at <>.  For further
