Archaeologists Google an Ancient Find

Indiana Jones's next adventure may well be in front of a computer if Hollywood scriptwriters decide to embrace a new approach to archaeological research in war-torn zones.

David Thomas, a PhD student in La Trobe University's archaeological program in Melbourne, has used Google Earth to safely uncover historic sites in a remote part of war-torn Afghanistan.

Using the free internet resource, Thomas found up to 450 possible archaeological sites in Registan, which borders Helmand and Kandahar provinces in southern Afghanistan.

This isn't a surprise, since many of the members here use Google earth to find anomalies, bases, structures etc.

Using this technology should actually increase the numbers of NEW "feet on the ground" projects in archaeology in the not to distant future.

It sure helps to pinpoint areas of interest.
