Author/narrator Dr. Sarah Parcak, an Egyptologist and satellite archaeologist, transports listeners across continents and millennia as she explores ancient cultures through hands-on excavations and remote sensing technology. Her passion for past civilizations and their legacies permeates her narration of this compelling and accessible work. Parcak drew early inspiration from the cinematic hero Indiana Jones and her grandfather, a forestry professor who mapped tree heights with aerial photography. Parcak includes a dramatic narration of an imagined ancient family, interwoven with clues unearthed at a present-day Egyptian dig site. Listeners can participate as amateur archaeologists through GlobalXplorer, an online platform Parcak developed for mapping satellite images.
