Dr. Devin White, senior research scientist of geocomputation at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and assistance professor of Anthropology at UT will present “Archaeological Discoveries from Space” at the UT Science Forum Friday, November 8.
There have been several exciting archaeological discoveries in the news over the past few years, from lost pyramids in Egypt to lost cites in Belize, Mexico and Cambodia. These discoveries were made possible by using remote sensing technology, which is also behind much of what you see in Google Earth.
Dr. White will highlight several of the discoveries and how the technology played a central role in each one.
The presentation will begin at 12 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe, Rooms C-D. The 40-minute presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
