Boshell Lecture: Indiana Jones in Space at Dallas Museum of Art
Dr. Sarah Parcak, 2016 TED Prize winner, and her team at the University of Alabama–Birmingham are pioneers in the field of satellite archaeology—the use of satellite remote sensing to discover archaeological sites more quickly and efficiently. With these methods, Parcak's team has uncovered seventeen potential pyramids as well as thousands of lost settlements and tombs around the world, many of which have revealed an increase in looting. She will discuss her work mapping unknown sites, its impact on historic and cultural preservation, and her Global Xplorer platform for citizen-scientists incterested in joining the hunt. Presented by the Boshell Family Lecture Series on Archaeology.
