This program is read by the author.

National Geographic Explorer and TED Prize-winner Dr. Sarah Parcak welcomes you to the exciting new world of space archaeology, a growing field that is sparking extraordinary discoveries from ancient civilizations across the globe.

In Archaeology from Space, Sarah Parcak shows the evolution, major discoveries, and future potential of the young field of satellite archaeology. From surprise advancements after the declassification of spy photography, to a new map of the mythical Egyptian city of Tanis, she shares her field's biggest discoveries, revealing why space archaeology is not only exciting, but urgently essential to the preservation of the world's ancient treasures.

Parcak has worked in 12 countries and four continents, using multispectral and high-resolution satellite imagery to identify thousands of previously unknown settlements, roads, fortresses, palaces, tombs, and even potential pyramids. From there, her stories take us back in time and across borders, into the day-to-day lives of ancient humans whose traits and genes we share. And she shows us that if we heed the lessons of the past, we can shape a vibrant future.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Wonderful and engaging!

I know very little about archeology, but have always wanted to learn more. This book delivers! The narration keeps you engaged just as much as the content does. Archaeology and space what else could you want!!!!

Read All About!! the past is news!

I've always been intrigued with past cultures and dreamed of visiting Egypt, which I've never done! I saw Sarah on Josh Gates' Expedition Unknown in 2020 during COVID sheltering in and was intrigued. Listening to this book you become a part of her experience and her reinventing stories from data collected of past experience. I will never become an archaeologist, but can join the TED mission to find humankind's past history through Global Explorer..Thanks Sarah!!

A masterpiece in Archaeology texts

A captivating work that spans the history, present works, and future expectations in Archaeology. Full of good humor, the book does well in not only explaining many of the author's finds using new technology, but also the shortcomings and even failures that are part of the job. This doesn't in my mind make her a bad Archaeologist, on the contrary, it humanizes her and shows that the field doesn't always produce "fortune and glory". I look forward to future publications from this author!

Wonderfully insightful

Loved the book, Insightful look into using satellites to make scientific discoveries in archaeology. I highly recommend this book if you are interested in GIS or Archeology.

heart warming and informative performance

I didn't think I would like such a genre but the title reeled me in. Sara's performance was heartwarming as she spoke from the heart. I really enjoyed the content and the stories she told. I hope can be a part of GX and contribute along with the crowd towards surveying the whole planet 😀
