Welcome to the Historic Archaeological Research (HAR) web site. Since its inception in 1993, HAR has been involved predominantly in projects requiring expertise in electronic metal detection, Global Positioning System (GPS) survey and mapping, and Geographic Information System (GIS) analysis of historic period archaeological sites including historic battlefields, military encampments, pioneer homesteads and Native American villages. The company has cooperated on these kinds of projects in Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan and Missouri. From the onset, HAR has endeavored to provide it's employers and clientele with cost effective services using state-of-the-art technologies.
During the last twelve years, the acquisition of electromagnetic subsurface imaging systems, Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and precision total station survey equipment has permitted HAR to expand into noninvasive geophysical investigation and mapping of pioneer cemeteries, in addition to, precision survey and subsurface imaging of both historic and prehistoric archaeological sites. These advanced survey and analytical techniques have also enhanced the company's capabilities in environmental applications including delineation of underground storage tanks, extinct utilities and other buried features. With the advent of new technologies, HAR has continued to upgrade and purchase advanced electronic data collection instrumentation and field survey equipment; as well as, state-of-the-art computer systems and software applications.
