May 25 - Lost pyramids spotted from space

Seventeen lost pyramids are among the buildings identified in a new satellite survey of Egypt.

More than 1,000 tombs and 3,000 ancient settlements were also revealed by looking at infra-red images which show up underground buildings.

Initial excavations have already confirmed some of the findings including of two suspected pyramids.

"To excavate a pyramid is the dream of every archaeologist," says Dr Sarah Parcak.

She has pioneered the work in space archaeology from a Nasa-sponsored laboratory in Birmingham, Alabama and says she was amazed at how much she and her team have found.

"We were very intensely doing this research for over a year. I could see the data as it was emerging, but for me the "A-Ha" moment was when I could step back and look at everything that we'd found and I couldn't believe we could locate so many sites all over Egypt."

The team analysed images from satellites orbiting 700km above the earth, equipped with cameras so powerful they can pin-point objects less than 1m in diameter on the earth's surface.

Infra-red imaging was used to highlight different materials under the surface.

Test excavations
Ancient Egyptians built their houses and structures out of mud brick, which is much denser than the soil that surrounds it, so the shapes of houses, temples and tombs can be seen.

"It just shows us how easy it is to underestimate both the size and scale of past human settlements," says Dr Parcak.

And she believes there are more antiquities to be discovered:

"These are just the sites [close to] the surface. There are many thousands of additional sites that the Nile has covered over with silt. This is just the beginning of this kind of work."

BBC cameras followed Dr Parcak on her "nervous" journey when she travelled to Egypt to see if excavations could back up what her technology could see under the surface.

In the BBC documentary Egypt's Lost Cities, they visit an area of Saqqara (Sakkara) where the authorities were not initially interested in her findings.

But after being told by Dr Parcak that she had seen two potential pyramids, they made test excavations and they now believe it is one of the most important archaeological sites in Egypt.

But Dr Parcak said "the most exciting moment was visiting the excavations at Tanis."

"They'd excavated a 3,000 year old house that the satellite imagery had shown and the outline of the structure matched the satellite imagery almost perfectly. That was real validation of the technology."

Indiana Jones is old school, we've moved on from Indy, sorry Harrison Ford ”

Dr Sarah Parcak
Space Archaeologist
Among other things, the Egyptian authorities plan to use the technology to help protect the country's antiquities in the future.

During the recent revolution, looters accessed some well-known archaeological sites.

"We can tell from the imagery a tomb was looted from a particular period of time and we can alert Interpol to watch out for antiquities from that time, that may be offered for sale."

She also hopes the new technology will help engage young people in science and will be a major help for archaeologists around the world.

"It allows us to be more focused and selective in the work we do. Faced with a massive site, you don't know where to start.

"It's an important tool to focus where we're excavating. It gives us a much bigger perspective on archaeological sites. We have to think bigger and that's what the satellites allow us to do."

"Indiana Jones is old school, we've moved on from Indy, sorry Harrison Ford."

Simmer the fu*k down Patrick Mcgroin ...

I don't believe in God, an afterlife and organized religion as a whole.

But I don't criticize those who do believe it.

That's why you look like a dumbass right now.

fu*k does me being a Yankee fan have to do w/ anything

And just to reiterate... You are a fu*king moron.

Personally thats the point when you become pissed because there's so many people in the world that believe a big lie (religion) that was created to separate man, and f!ght others with different beliefs....I think there is some sort of God or something out there (because I believe in Ghosts). When you become pissed, you lose your ability to act "intelligent" per se' and just get frustrated, Jesus is a lie, along with all the other fairy tales....End of Story, End of Thread...
Only dumb people go into a fit of rage when someone disagrees w/ there stance on something. If I'm arguing w/ someone who takes a dumb a.ss stance on a subject I don't rage argue them
