In phase from CMD Explorer

We now have some initial results from the survey we talked about last week.  Here is the In Phase component of the CMD explorer results. In the center right is the round church yard. Many of the booths are also visible.    This image does not add a whole lot to what is visible on the surface.  However, this and some of the other components may suggest where a farmstead might be located.
