Slide 1: Archaeologists must first check out an area before they begin an excavation. We call this a survey. Slide 2: When we begin to investigate a possible site, we visit the site, walk around, record information about the area, make measurements and quick maps, and take note of any artifacts we see on the ground. Slide 3: If it looks like the site would be good to excavate, we might start by digging a few STPs (Shovel Test Pits) Slide 4: Sometimes we find out some things about the site before we visit, by looking at maps or by talking to people who live near the area we are studying. Slide 5: GPS Units make it easy for us to map out an area quickly without having to use a compass and tape measure or a laser transit system. Slide 6: GPS SATELLITES ORBITING EARTH Slide 8: MAP WITH GPS LOCATIONS PLOTTED
