Description: Presenting for the South East Florida Archaeological Society: "Space Archaeology"
One of the greatest impacts on archaeology in the 21st century is the use of satellites to discover and document archaeological sites. Data collected from space is changing the way archaeologists investigate landscapes and spatial relationships; this data is also being used to track the destruction or loss of archaeological sites. This talk will discuss the advent and growth of space archaeology as a discipline within archaeology as well as provide case studies of researchers who are currently pushing the boundaries of archaeological research from beyond the confines of our planet.
FPAN is participating in this event.
