The Archeological Society of Maryland, Inc. (ASM) is seeking a qualified vendor to provide geophysical/remote sensing archaeological services to ASM in the late autumn of 2016.
 
The Archeological Society of Maryland, Inc., received a grant through the National Park Service Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Fund, (administered by the Maryland Historical Trust,) to conduct excavation and documentation on three imminently threatened archaeological sites in Anne Arundel, Calvert, and St. Marys counties, Maryland. As part of this documentation, geophysical survey of one of the three sites, the Lower Brambly (Secowocomoco) site (18ST51), is desired.
 
The Archeological Society of Maryland, Inc. (ASM), is an all-volunteer non-profit dedicated to promoting, facilitating, and enabling the preservation, discovery, academic study, appreciation, and stewardship of public and privately-owned cultural resources, historic structures, and archaeological sites in the State of Maryland by supporting the technical, scholarly, and intellectual work of academics, professionals, and students, in activities related to the mission. The ASM is administering these grant funds and facilitating the project to inform planning for the potential loss of archaeological data. This project is being conducted in coordination with the St. Marys College of Maryland, and respondents will be required to closely coordinate with both the College and the Maryland Historical Trust (MHT) during all phases of the project.
 
 In order to implement the Project, the ASM seeks the services of a professional archaeological consultant to undertake the various aspects of the scope of work described below, and as defined by the grant agreement between the ASM and the MHT. Archaeological professional services being solicited are for a Geophysical Archeologist specializing in remote sensing. All proposals from qualified Geophysical Archeologists will be considered.
 
 The selected Geophysical Archeologist will be authorized to represent the ASM Board of Directors on Project and grant-related matters, will serve as the ASM Boards material expert for the duration of this project, and will coordinate closely with the Board on a regular basis. The Geophysical Archeologist will work in close collaboration with Dr. Julie King of St. Marys College of Maryland, who will serve as the Principal Investigator for the Project and will be responsible for all research conducted at the Lower Brambly site. In coordination with Dr. King, the Geophysical Archeologist will select the appropriate technique(s) for the geological setting to detect subsurface anomalies that might be evidence of Native American activities on the landscape between 1000 and 500 years ago. In addition to deploying the selected technique(s), the Geophysical Archeologist will analyze and interpret the results, and author a technical report documenting the survey and findings.
