Archaeologists using satellites to find ancient sites

Thousands of possible early human settlements have been discovered using computers and satellite images, the BBC reported.

About 9,000 new sites were found in Syria by scanning satellite photos for soil discoloration. Archaeologists hope to test the method further by researching land in Iraq’s Kurdish provinces.
