Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology
This unique exhibit showcases declassified images taken by U.S. government spy satellites in the 1960s that are now being used by archaeologists to locate and better understand ancient sites in Syria, Iraq, Iran and Peru. Through these bird’s-eye-view photographs, which are both visually captivating and teeming with archaeological information, visitors can detect the well-formed irrigation canals around the ancient Assyrian city of Nineveh in Iraq, or the ancient tracks and roadways that still radiate out from the Bronze Age mound of Tell Brak in Syria.
