Geophysical Investigation at Morristown National Historic Park
EPI Geophysics recently conducted a non-destructive geophysical investigation at Morristown National Historical Park (Jockey Hollow Section) in Morristown, New Jersey for Monmouth University.
Jockey Hollow was used during the Revolutionary War as an encampment site for the Continental Army from December 1779 to June 1780. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) along with Electromagnetic (EM) Induction data were collected during the geophysical fieldwork.
EPI Geophysics also assisted in conducting a systematic metal detecting survey of the project area. Metal detecting finds from the 18th century include military uniform buttons, musket parts, musket balls, and a lead game piece.
