Hopping Cemetery
Hopping Ave.
Wayne, OK 73095 United States


Time: 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Participants will learn traditional cemetery documentation techniques such as demographic recordation, tombstone styles, and tombstone rubbings to recover information lost to weathering. Historical and archival reviews may be conducted to identify individuals buried in the cemetery. Participants will have the opportunity to observe Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and Electrical Resistivity (ER) technologies to locate underground anomalies that can indicate the presence of unknown or lost graves.

Food and drinks will be provided to participants.
