More and more, highly specialized scientists are taking over the investigation of the past. Using satellites and aircraft, they are screening entire regions throughout the world in an attempt to find hidden traces of early societies. What’s more, their discoveries—often in complete contrast to archaeology’s established schools of thought—are changing our view of prehistoric civilizations. Here, the illustrious geoarchaeologist Eberhard Zangger takes the reader into the field to look at excavations around the world, explaining current thinking in archaeological research and exploring the sophisticated techniques that have only recently become available. The result is a refreshingly novel view of the past and a fascinating glimpse of the future of archeological science.
