Book Description 
With the advent of aviation in the late nineteenth century, archaeologists realized the potential of a new point of view; combining flight with photography allowed archaeological sites to be studied from the air. By the early twentieth century, aerial archaeology had become an established research method. Ancient urban settlements, necropolises buried in rubble or sand, and ancient drainage systems could be seen more clearly from above-in some cases, these sites were discernible only from the air.  
This magnificent collection of aerial photographs of the world's foremost archaeological sites covers 249 locations in over fifty countries. Moving from Hadrian's Wall to Uluru, from the Tower of Babel to the Nasca Lines, from Tara to Jerusalem, readers can now view the familiar from a new perspective-above. Leading aerial photographer Georg Gerster has teamed up with archaeologist Charlotte Tr|mpler to shed new light on the dawn of civilization.
