DeVore, Steven L.
The geophysical investigations of a family cemetery (14BN111) in Brown County, Kansas, were initiated by the National Park Service in response to a request from the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska executive committee. A meeting and site tour were held with the tribal chairman and executive committee staff members, tenant farmer, and Midwest Archeological Center (MWAC) Archeological Assistance and Partnership Program archeologist on January 15, 2004. This visit was to assess the feasibility of the application of geophysical techniques to the identification and evaluation of the Campbell cemetery. During the week of March 22, 2004 and on April 1, 2004, the author, a MWAC archeologist, conducted geophysical investigations at the Campbell family cemetery (14BN111). Geophysical investigations, including magnetic gradient, resistance, conductivity, and ground-penetrating radar surveys, were conducted at the cemetery location identified by the Iowa Tribe executive committee chairman and vice-chairman.
