Archaeology and Technology.jpg

Dylan Davis is lead author on a paper titled, "Automated mound detection using lidar and object-based image analysis in Beaufort County, South Carolina." The article details his teams efforts to create algoritms and workflows for a computer system to identify mounds and earthworks. The results were stunning! They covered an amazing amount of space in a short period of time and ground truthed just a few of the results which resulted in the discovery of some previously undiscovered mounds. This is just the beginning for a system like this.

Stopping the Destruction of Wisconsin's Mounds - CRMArchPodcast 91

On today's episode we bring on two Wisconsin archaeologists to talk about the proposed AB620 bill that will basically allow land owners to test mounds for human remains and de-list them from the Wisconsin Historical Society's list if there are none found. Then, they will likely be able to destroy them. It's an important issue for Wisconsin and the entire mid-west, or, anywhere with a similar problem. Please comment below if you have some input on this issue.
