Maps! UTMs! Township and Range! What the heck does all that mean and where does it come from??? You MIGHT know some of this but I bet you don't know all of it. Level up your mapping knowledge with this short primer on all the things archaeologists use in the field to find out where they, or something, are.

Here's what we'll cover:

  • The UTM Grid
  • Township and Range
  • Smithsonian Trinomials
  • Basic Site Mapping

Much of what we'll cover can be found in Chris Webster's, "Field Archaeologist's Survival Guide" (Routlege 2014).
