“Lost” New England Revealed

New England’s woody hills and dales hide a secret—they weren’t always forested. Instead, many were once covered with colonial roads and farmsteads.

I love living in New England and finding stonewalls from old farmsteads; an archaeology professor at UConn (who grew up in Rhode Island) is using geospatial technologies to map out the remants of that historical landscape.  This is a great example of using spatial thinking across the disciplines.  Yes, this is history and archaeology, but you better believe that it’s geographic as well.
