Often the two become confused: lives and human tragedy are considered a product, something that will engender interest and thereby generate revenue. The greater the suffering, the more successful the program and the greater market share.
Evidence of almost 100 of the stones has revealed without the need to excavate the site, due to remote sensing, ground-penetrating radar and geographical imaging technologies. These advancements in science and technology allow researchers to discover the historical monuments full extent. Fragments of bones, stones and the foundation pits in which they were situated have all been uncovered during excavations and technological mapping indicating the true size and importance the site was to the Neolithic
There are many ways that an archeological site can be observed, for example, aerial photography such as satellite pictures can be used. Also when carrying out an excavation on a low budget, which is very common in most cases, a low-flying kite can replace the satellite (Roskams, page 43). More recently the more common availability and use of drones could also be used to get live aerial data from above. Many sites are more apparent from above, and New Kinord is a great example as you can see some of the stone circles clearly, see figure 2 below.
They sift every spoonful of earth, and they map in 3-D where each scrap of bone, corn, pottery, and shell bead comes from. They even keep track of where the dirt changes color.Cahokia Mounds State ,where a mystery was partly solved when workers at another dig a few miles away found a bald cypress log three feet in diameter in such a hole. The "bathtubs" were post pits, shaped to make it possible to ease huge posts into them. It soon became clear that the prehistoric "Cahokians" had indeed designed and put in place a circle of posts. And not just any circle: if you stood at its center on the mornings of the spring and fall equinoxes (usually March 21 and September 21 in our calendar), you would see the sun rise from behind a post. It 's lucky for us that Mississippian culture survived Cahokia 's decline and abandonment around 1300 and was still around in 1539, when Hernando de Soto tried to conquer what is now the
In Sky land people were living as they do today on earth. In the center of this land existed a Sky tree that provided food for people in Sky land. Aataentsic, the old chief of Sky Lands wife , cuts down the tree to give the fruit that lies at the very top of the tree to heal her sick husband. However, as soon as she struck the tree, it spilt in half , toppled over and formed a hole in sky land. After the tree falls into the hole , Aataentsic belives that without that without the sky tree , there can be no life , therefore , Aataentsic follows the tree. After Aataentsic threw herself into the hole , turtle called together all the water animals to form an island on top of his back to save Aataentsic life as she gently settled on the new earth.
We believe this chapter gave a better understanding on globalization and migration. In “Remotely Sensed”, we recognized that the women that volunteer to be trafficked for sex work are usually migrant women who have difficulties providing for their families and finding jobs where they are from. This causes them to resort to prostitution, because they see it as the only job that could earn them enough money to provide for themselves and their families. We often see influential people with power speak about helping women get out of prostitution. Yet those same people in power support the state which holds on to the structures which refuses to give women equal working opportunities. This causes us to wonder if they are really interested in putting an end to human sex traffic or will continue to let it occur as it creates and puts money in the
According to the book Photography by Stephen Bull “Instead of the opposing aspects of nature and culture that were embedded within the identity of photography when it was conceived should both be embraced as integral to the medium.” When Abelardo Morell made his photographs he wanted people to pay atten¬tion and to under¬stand that there’s more to see¬ing life than what we think we thing we see, we need to see things from a different per¬ceive. Abelardo Morrell made cityscape bloom on white bed¬sheets, and the Golden Gate Bridge on the ground. He exper¬i¬mented with many different ranges of tech¬niques, most common technique that he uses is the tent cam¬era and the kind of portable which helps make the cam¬era obscura technique that shows the photographs of different land¬scape onto the ground and different surfaces. Abelardo Morell wanted everyone to see that life isn’t black or whit it is not up or down, the world is full of different possibilities. Amazing things can be anywhere and everywhere you just have to open up your eyes.
Instead of diging, they used ariel photography and ground-penetrating radar, a completly noninvasive tectince. The reseachers used virtural 3D models to recreate the site.
Methods used included, taking GPS points at different rock units and marking them onto an aerial map to distinguish bearings and lithologies, traversing the area, and identifying rock and fossils types.
Technology is changing rapidly every single day, they can change anything positively or negatively. Luckily for us, a major positive change has happened in the archaeology field, greatly impacting archaeologist’s data and findings. This air borne laser sensor, Lidar (Light Detection And Ranging) (Hopkins, 2014) is taking the archaeology field by storm. Before LiDAR archaeologists had to dig through thick vegetation and undergrowth in Mesoamerica in search for ancient cities, artifacts, and fossils. This was not only time consuming it was inaccurate. LiDAR was the solution to their problem, this is a laser based tool that penetrates through deep forest canopies and creates large volumes or 3D measurements (Chase Et Le., 2012)helping scientists
The thin atmosphere and low humidity has made the desert the best place to study space. Thus, there is geology, astronomy and archaeology all in the same place. The astronomers look for the past of eons ago, the archaeologists are looking for the past of 10’000 years ago, and the women are looking 30 years in the
looks at one theory of how the moon formed which was through a massive collision of Earth with a Mars-sized planetesimal created debris that combined to form the moon some 50,000 years after Earth formed.
Hydrography is the study of measuring and describing the floors of an ocean’s floor. The scientists use hydrography to see what the oceans landing, or floor, looks like. The data gathered from using hydrography is used to update nautical charts, and form hydrographic models. The main way to get data for the science of
This field photo was taken in Location C, 19° north, 73° east, and this can be seen through the physical geography of Location C. First, the physical features of Location C prove that this picture was taken in Location C. Location C's physical features include the western coast of India, and the elevation is 0-1,000 feet. This picture shows that it is raining very hard and the streets are flooded. One can infer that since Location C is on the western coast of India and has a low elevation, floods are prone to this location. Also, since Location A is located in a desert and deserts do not have high populations or this much rain, this picture cannot have been taken in Location A. This photo could not have been taken in Location B either because
