Ever wanted to know what a “Space Archealogist” does?


For the last several years, “space archaeologist” Sarah Parcak, an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, has pored over satellite images to discover lost pyramids, tombs and cities buried in Egypt. (She’s even detected the network of streets and houses of ancient Tanis, the city featured in the Indiana Jones movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”) In her latest study, Parcak didn’t analyze ancient features, but rather looked at modern ones in Egypt: the holes in the ground left by tomb robbers and antiquities thieves.
