This book will awaken the explorer in all of us." Chris Anderson, Head of TED National Geographic Fellow and TED Prizewinner Sarah Parcak pioneers the young field of satellite archaeology, using futuristic tools to unlock secrets from the past and transform how discoveries are made. As an archaeologist, she has worked on remote sensing projects across twelve countries and four continents, using multispectral and high-resolution satellite imagery analysis to identify thousands of potential archaeological sites.

These include previously unknown settlements, roads, fortresses, palaces, tombs, and even potential pyramids. She presently directs major crowdsourcing efforts to map ancient civilizations across Peru and India. In Archaeology from Space, Sarah describes the fields evolution, major discoveries, and future potential.

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 also essential to the preservation of the worlds ancient treasures for future generations. Sarahs stories take readers back in time and across borders, into the day-to-day lives of ancient humans who displayed grit, ingenuity, and brilliance across the millennia. We share those same traits, and those same underlying genes.

If we heed the lessons of the past, we can shape a vibrant future.
