Metal Detector Technician
Lance Crosby has been the metal detector technician at James Madison's Montpelier since 2008, but has been metal detecting for the past 30 years. Mr Crosby has played a vital role in the survey and identification of the cultural resources on Montpelier's 2,650-acre property, and has helped in locating numerous house sites, property lines, road traces, and Civil War encampments. His expertise in Civil War history and artifacts has also contributed to the archaeological study and teaching collections, as well as the long-term conservation of these important parts of Montpelier's history. Through this collaboration, Montpelier has been able to establish easements to ensure the preservation of these sites for future generations.
Mr Crosy has also played a pivotal role in the development of the Montpelier Archaeology Certificate Program in cooperation with the American division of Minelab, Inc.
