The Southeast Archeological Center (SEAC), sponsored by the National Park Service, underwent an exacavation at Shiloh National Historic Park and in Corinth, Mississippi. By using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), and Systematic Metal Detecting, the team was able to uncover new ways to understand the battles that happened in Tennessee and Mississippi. By using such technologies as GPR, these archaeologists could understand how the ground looked for the men fighting for it. Although this excavation happened in 1999, it shows how new technologies can advance our understanding of old battles. Ten years later, we can use our ever more advanced technologies, such as Geographic Information System (GIS), to strip away the past and look at it in a whole new light.
