NATIONAL PARK SERVICE MIDWEST ARCHEOLOGICAL CENTER ARCHEOLOGICAL REPORT NO. 9
The geophysical survey of the four selected areas within the Trade Fair Locality at Pecos National Historical Park was conducted between June 24 and 30, 2012. The Midwest Archeological Center provided technical assistance for the geophysical investigations of the four geophysical project areas. The geophysical investigations consisted primarily of a magnetic survey with a dual fluxgate gradiometer. A limited conductivity survey with an electromagnetic induction meter was also conducted on two of the four geophysical project areas. An area equal to 8,876 m2 or 2.19 ac was surveyed during the geophysical investigations of the four geophysical project areas. The geophysical survey resulted in the identification of numerous subsurface archeological features associated with the Pecos Pueblo occupation, historic Spanish and American activities, and the modern National Park Serv ice use of the property.
