Drones spy hidden ruins

Near Chaco Canyon unearthing secrets buried for centuries
Researchers used a drone with a heat-sensing camera to discover buried archaeological sites at the Blue J area south of Chaco Canyon in New Mexico. The thermal images allow researchers to identify structures buried beneath the surface.
Drones give archaeologists a new set of eyes. They can reveal unexpected features of a site archaeologists already have been excavating.
In this photograph taken by a drone researchers found remnants of a village at the Blue J site in northwestern New Mexico. In just a few hours, drones can survey an area that could take archaeologists years to survey by hand.
