To whom it may concern,

On Wednesday 29 February, will take place the seminar “The use of CORONA satellite photography in archaeology" by the invited lecturer Dr. Nikolaos Galiatsatos (Durham University, UK). The seminar will be held at the Sala d’Actes of the Institució Milà i Fonantals (CSIC), Barcelona. The seminar is the first talk of a series called “Seminars in Applied Earth Observation and Remote Sensing Techniques for Archaeology and the Environment”.

Please find all the information related in the enclosed file (.pdf). We would appreciate if you could share this announcement to other interested researchers and students.

Summary:
CORONA satellite photography was acquired during the 1960s, a time when in many countries the landscape (and in extent, the archaeological record on Earth’s surface) was still largely untouched by the modern human (urban or agricultural) expansion. The detail of CORONA photography is equal to what would be provided by a high-altitude aerial photograph and the cost/coverage ratio makes it a very cheap resource. Therefore, CORONA satellite photography has become a valuable resource for archaeology

Thank you in advance,
