ISAS utilized a geophysical survey to reveal a 13th century village in Central Illinois. ISAS archaeologists and researchers knew about the site for the past 30 years but were unable to determine exactly how large and intact this important site was. The results from the geophysical survey revealed a village with house structures, a plaza, and possible fortification ditch & palisade–all without disturbing the site. This site is a great example of using modern technology to further our understanding and to help ISAS with preservation efforts.
