Drone-based Geophysics Technique to Rapidly Screen Archaeological Sites
Ur, Eridu, Lagash and Umma, Southern Iraq
Major archaeological sites in Iraq are becoming endangered by a variety of natural and human threats, such as erosion, looting, and industrial development. This project will rapidly investigate, map, and identify the nature of these threats and the archaeological features of Ur, Eridu, Lagash, and Umma in southern Iraq. This documentation will provide the basis for an effective protection and management system for threatened sites.
