    Abstract

    REMOTE SENSING IN the form of aerial photography has made extensive contributions to archaeology over the years, especially in identifying and mapping ancient sites. Such sites usually have dimensions measured in tens or hundreds of metres, and the high resolution afforded by aerial surveys makes such an approach very cost effective. Spaceborne platforms generally have much poorer spatial resolutions and have not made significant contributions in the field of archaeology. However, the unique imaging capabilities of spaceborne radar systems have provided valuable information to archaeologists and will become increasingly important in the future.
