LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Rory Becker, Ph.D., assistant professor of anthropology, will talk about how archaeologists see beneath the ground without digging Thursday, Jan. 12 at EOU.
Archaeologists employ many methods of learning about the distant past, but as Becker explains, not all of them involve moving dirt. Learn more about noninvasive techniques, including remote sensing technologies, at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210. Refreshments will be provided at 3:30 and the presentation is free and open to the public.
Becker emphasizes how the use of these techniques helps archaeologists find new sites, focus their excavations on highly productive areas, and can help preserve archaeological sites for future study.
