Buried Beneath Our Feet – The Lost Cities of Egypt

"Buried cities are beneath our feet; the ground on which we tread is the pavement of a tomb." ~ Winwood Reade, The Martyrdom of Man (1872)

Today on Far Future Horizons we join the search for – the Lost Cities of Egypt. According to archaeologists ninety nine percent of the magnificent wonders of Ancient Egypt have yet to be discovered.

But now, thanks to the pioneering work of Dr Sarah Parcak, that is about to change.

Egyptologists have discovered up to 17 pyramids and more than 3000 other buildings buried under sand using ultra-red satellite cameras.

Dr Sarah Parcak uses satellite remote sensing (satellite archaeology) to probe beneath the sifting sands of Egypt in search of the tell tail signs of temples, pyramids and lost cities.

Now, with the help of BBC journalists Dallas Campbell and Liz Bonnin, she heads to Egypt to discover if these magnificent buildings are actually there.
