Archaeological data recovery and analysis can very usefully be performed by remote sensing. These methods are powerful and relatively inexpensive. This is the sole book that presents current techniques and research in these methods in a way useful for students of remote sensing, geography, and archaeology. Technical aspects of remote sensing are covered in general, and the text concentrates on applications and results. It surveys the development of archaeological remote sensing from early aerial photography through to high-resolution satellite imagery, and then details the various methods currently available, extensively illustrated with examples of practical applications as case studies.
