GEOPHYSICAL SURVEYS AT THE HARTWELL TAVERN SITE MINUTEMAN NATIONAL HISTORIC PARK
This document reports on methodology, interpretation and conclusions of a detailed resistivity survey at the Hartwell Tavern Site, Minuteman National Historical Park (Concord/Lincoln), Mass. Resistivity Technique is discussed in general terms as well as its specific application at Hartwell Tavern. Interpretation of resistivity anomalies is discussed as a general concept as well as specific anomalies which may be due to the results of human activity at the Hartwell Tavern Site. The program was undertaken on an experimental basis and is the first phase of an archeological project which will next test the reliability and effectiveness of resistivity survey for archeological survey.
