Some brief overview of book

This program is read by the author. National Geographic Explorer and TED Prize-winner Dr. Sarah Parcak welcomes you to the exciting new world of space archaeology, a growing field that is sparking extraordinary discoveries from ancient civilizations across the globe. In Archaeology from Space, Sarah Parcak shows the evolution, major discoveries, and future potential of the young field of satellite archaeology.

From surprise advancements after the declassification of spy photography, to a new map of the mythical Egyptian city of Tanis, she shares her fields biggest discoveries, revealing why space archaeology is not only exciting, but urgently essential to the preservation of the worlds ancient treasures. Parcak has worked in twelve countries and four continents, using multispectral and high-resolution satellite imagery to identify thousands of previously unknown settlements, roads, fortresses, palaces, tombs, and even potential pyramids. From there, her stories take us back in time and across borders, into the day-to-day lives of ancient humans whose traits and genes we share.

And she shows us that if we heed the lessons of the past, we can shape a vibrant future.
