In this lecture given to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, UC San Diego professor Thomas Levy discusses how new digital technologies are transforming archaeology in the 21st century and helping to preserve the world’s cultural heritage. Using examples from various archaeological projects in the Holy Land, including his ongoing fieldwork at the ancient copper mining site of Faynan (Biblical Punon) in modern Jordan, Levy introduces viewers to the ever-expanding digital toolkit of modern archaeology, from LiDAR scanning and enhanced mapping techniques to 3D virtual recreations of excavation environments.
