In 2017, UW-Milwaukee, UW-Madison, and the Friends of Aztalan, partnered with the WDNR to conduct a magnetic gradient survey of the Aztalan site. The survey revealed new and previously unknown features within the enclosure of the 1000-year-old Middle Mississippian village, as well as the impacts of 150 years of excavation, visitation, and other disturbances.
