Spy satellite images expose 8,000 years of civilization
When on the hunt for ancient civilizations, it’s not about being Indiana Jones. It is known that archaeologists use for example Google Earth for their studies but now they went a step further and have developed a method of spotting smaller human settlements by combining spy-satellite photos obtained in the 1960s with modern multispectral images and digital maps of Earth’s surface. The approach was used to map some 14,000 settlement sites spanning eight millennia in 23,000 square kilometres of northeastern Syria.
