Horsley has more than a decade of experience utilizing non-invasive archaeological methods on commercial and research projects in many parts of the world. He has a PhD in Archaeological Prospection from the University of Bradford, UK, for which he undertook investigations in Iceland and developed a specialty in applying geophysical techniques. His research has included work in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North America, with recent results including the exciting new picture of the remains at the Barton Site in Western MD.
Horsley’s lecture titled, Using Geophysical Techniques to Reveal Buried Archaeological Remains, will include a background to these new tools that can identify what is underneath the ground before excavation begins, and will feature results from Maryland and around the globe.
