  Selected Significant CRM and Geoarchaeology Projects:


Buried Site Location in Michigan (1999-2001). Drs. Monaghan and W.A. Lovis of Michigan State University received a two-year $150,000 grant through Federal Highway Enhancement Funds to write a monograph describing the state of deep testing in Michigan and aid the Michigan DOT in establishing standards for buried site exploration.  A major part of the project is to develop a GIS model that predicates the location of buried sites in river valleys in Michigan.


Hickory Bluff Site, Dover, Delaware (1998).  Dr. Monaghan and Daniel Hayes cooperated with Parsons-Engineering Sciences to design and implement the geomorphic and pedologic study for the project.  An important aspect of their work was to distinguish cultural from natural pit-like features using geochemical, pedological, and geological methods.


Great Lakes Gas Pipeline Project Michigan (1990-1994). Dr. Monaghan worked closely with Great Lakes Research Associates to design and coordinate  the geoarchaeological studies during all phases of the 300-mile-long Great Lakes Gas Pipeline.  His work led to discovery of four buried sites.


Empire Pipeline Project, New York (1991-1994).  Dr. Monaghan and his associate Daniel Hayes worked with Commonwealth Cultural Resources Group and Geoarchaeological Research Associates to design and implement  a deep test strategy and were instrumental to the successful completion of the geoarchaeological work during excavation on four large archaeological sites.


US-31 and US-23 Phase I Survey, Michigan (1995-1997)  Dr. Monaghan coordinated with Great Lakes Research Associates to design a deep test strategy for two major highway projects in Michigan.  His design and field work led to the discovery of two prehistoric sites.
