    Satellite Remote Sensing for Archaeology

    By Sarah H. Parcak

    Book Description

    This handbook is the first
    comprehensive overview of the field of satellite remote sensing for
    archaeology and how it can be applied to ongoing archaeological
    fieldwork projects across the globe. It provides a survey of the history
    and development of the field, connecting satellite remote sensing in
    archaeology to broader developments in remote sensing, archaeological
    method and theory, cultural resource management, and environmental
    studies. With a focus on practical uses of satellite remote sensing,
    Sarah H. Parcak evaluates satellite imagery types and remote sensing
    analysis techniques specific to the discovery, preservation, and
    management of archaeological sites.

    Case studies from Asia, Central
    America, and the Middle East are explored, including Xi’an, China;
    Angkor Wat, Cambodia and Egypt’s floodplains. In-field surveying
    techniques particular to satellite remote sensing are emphasized,
    providing strategies for recording ancient features on the ground
    observed from space. The book also discusses broader issues relating to
    archaeological remote sensing ethics, looting prevention, and
    archaeological site preservation. New sensing research is included and
    illustrated with the inclusion of over 160 satellite images of ancient
