ON THE COVER: RC aircraft, equipped with a camera, have become practical and useful tools for archaeologists looking for low-cost mapping solutions
and 3-D modeling of archaeological sites, landscapes, and excavations.
Austin “Chad” Hill shares with us how this emerging technology is being used in Jordan to replace kites, balloons, poles, fruit pickers, construction
