Join Baltimore Heritage for an evening with Dr. Tim Horsley – an expert in the archeological science of using remote sensing to discover stories from the past literally buried deep underground. In today’s Patterson Park, Dr. Horsley is using ground-penetrating radar, magnetometry and other techniques to help us find the remains of the Battle of Baltimore’s Eastern Defensive Line for We Dig Hampstead Hill.
With M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in archeological prospection from the University of Bradford, United Kingdom, Dr. Horsley established Horsley Archaeological Prospection, LLC, in 2008 and has rapidly become one of the most sought after consultants in eastern North America. The geophysical survey techniques he employs provide a non-invasive method to identify buried features, which can range from human burials to historic and prehistoric fortifications.
Please join us for light refreshments, an introduction to the Searching for the War of 1812 project by Dr. John Bedell, Louis Berger Group, and a show-and-tell on Hampstead Hill with Dr. Tim Horsley. Registration is not required for this free informal program.
