Jon Baker, of TimesReporter.com, has written an exciting article about  Ohio Valley Archaeology's recent geophysical survey of Schoenbrunn Village;
 a Moravian and Delaware village site from the 1700s.

"The survey will set up a baseline grid so future survey and archaeological projects can build on what has already been done at the site, and future excavations will be able to make use of the survey results. [Jarrod] Burks used both a handheld magnetometer and ground-penetrating radar in his work."
