Kate Johnson (who got her MA in historical Archaeology from UMass Boston)  recently published paper in the Journal of Archaeological Science called  Rediscovering the lost archaeological landscape of southern New England using airborne light detection and ranging (LiDAR).  This paper was picked up first by National Geographic, then by Science, then by the Huffington Post, and then most recently by CT NPR.  Kate gave us a preview of this paper a few months ago.
