Traditionally, archaeology has been a low-tech pursuit, using trowels, strings, line levels and measuring tapes to record finds. However, thanks to cutting-edge new technology, the field has recently been undergoing a seismic shift. At their 37th annual co-sponsored program, the Professional Archaeologists of New York City (PANYC) and the Museum of the City of New York present five leading archaeologists who will discuss the high-tech tools that they are using for archaeological surveying, site recording and modeling — and how archeologists are now making their findings virtually accessible to us all.
