And more remote sensing High-tech archaeology comes to Manatee site
An archaeological survey of the historic Indian Spring Park in Bradenton will start on Monday, but there will not be a shovel in sight.

Instead, the survey will be done with a new high-tech gadget that can scan beneath the soil to find buried artifacts.

Archaeologists hope the CART System will produce historical finds that could prove the existence of a settlement built close to a mineral spring around the 1840s.
