The social dinner for the 5th International Conference on Remote Sensing in Archaeology: The Age of Sensing will take place at the Doris Duke Center in the beautiful Sarah P. Duke Gardens.
The Sarah P. Duke Gardens is considered one of the top ten public gardens in the United States. Begun in the 1930s, the gardens now feature over five miles of pathways and are divided into four main areas: the Historic Gardens, including the original terraces designed by Ellen Biddle Shipman, the H.L. Blomquist Garden of Native Plants, a display of the flora of the southeastern United states, the W.L. Culberson Asiatic Arboretum, a display of flora from eastern Asia, and the Doris Duke Center Gardens. The Sarah P. Duke gardens will be celebrating their 75th anniversary in 2014.
