Paper Abstract

Criteria for selecting the appropriate combination of sensors when searching for cultural features within an archaeological site are poorly developed and sorely needed for the economic application of remote sensing in archaeology. The Hollywood Mounds, a late prehistoric ceremonial center in the lower Mississippi alluvial valley of the southeastern United State, has been the subject of a large number of remote sensing experiments using a wide variety of both digital airborne and geophysical sensors. In addition, two seasons of ground truth excavations have been carried out at the site. Multivariate statistical analyses, beginning with a map of the known locations of house and mound remnants, allow us to derive quantitative measures of the relative value of the various instruments in this specific but fairly typical context.
