SAAR Cemetery Album - 20

Ground Penetrating Radar

Earlier this year, the SKCGS received a Landmark Rehabilitation grant from 4Culture. We used it to hire Robert Schall of GeoRadar Imaging to locate unmarked burial sites.

The weather played a huge part in Robert’s schedule as the ground had to be dry for three days in a row. Because of our wet spring, we weren’t able to start work until July. The scanning machine would indicate anomalies in the soil indicating where the soil was ‘different’ leading one to assume a burial site. Robert would spray paint the area of each anomaly. When the scanning was completed in September a total of 63 anomalies were discovered.

Besides locating possible burial areas, Robert discovered this artifact, which was buried only several inches deep. It is iron and looks to be part of fence or decorative post. It was found near the original entrance of the cemetery and near the burial plot of Margaret Saar.
