Nathan Meissner, left, an SIU graduate with his Ph.D. in archaeology, measures ground distance with Chad Hall, a senior from Decatur studying criminology and criminal justice, during an archeological site examination Tuesday at the site of the Old Main building. “We’ve done a couple limited tests with [the ground penetrating radar], but this is the largest run,” said Meissner, a current research associate. “It’s a learning experience for us.  An amazing thing would be to use this equipment full scale at a large prehistoric site here in southern Illinois. I like using high tech equipment, it bring out the inner nerd in me.”
