Lost civilisations shown from space
Ever suspicion about a good mislaid civilisation — a Maya of Central America, say, or a Indus of South-East Asia — and thought: what does that ancient site demeanour like now?
Google’s got we covered.
A new underline from a tech giant, called Lost Civilisations, lets we explore, regulating Google Earth technology, those tools of a universe in a benefaction day.
Some, like a Nabaya Playa — home to a tiny village 10,000 years ago in what is now a Egyptian Sahara — are small some-more than dull expanses of desert.
Other places are still occupied. Collinsville, in suburban Illinois, was a abounding Indigenous village famous as Cahokia between 600 and 1400AD. Google’s apparatus lets we try what stays (spoiler: not much).
Here are a few of a other mislaid civilisations, and how those locations demeanour today.
Niya, China, a city on a Silk Road 1,600 years ago
Cahokia, United States, a city of gritty mounds built before Europeans arrived
Angkor Wat, Cambodia, a large civic centre during a Khmer Empire, 1000-1200AD
The Minaret of Jam, Afghanistan, built in a 1100s
The Maya, Mexico, a abounding sovereignty in a initial millennium AD
Catalhoyuk, executive Turkey, was a village but roads 7,000-9,000 years ago
Indus or Harappan, Pakistan, a vital race centre deserted 3,000 years ago
Gobekli Tepe, Turkey, a nest-like structure of walls some-more than 10,000 years old
Nabta Playa, Egypt, a village between 7,000 and 6,500 BC
