About This Project

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs, or drones) are revolutionizing archaeological landscape mapping. Using drones, we will conduct a high-resolution aerial survey of previously unknown prehistoric monuments and archaeological sites in the eastern Black Desert of Jordan. Aerial surveys such as this can be particularly useful for recording prehistoric structures that tend to be small and difficult to identify from satellite images.
