MessageToEagle.com - The mysterious world of the ancients has once again surprised us! As our technology improves, scientists and archaeologists can explore prehistoric buildings, ruins and learn more about their purpose and civilizations that lived in the region. Lidar, laser with radar can be especially helpful. Lidar does not actually penetrate or ‘see through’ vegetation but itsends out a laser pulse, which is then reflected back to the instrument by any object or surface that the laser beam encounters.

Now for the first time ever, using a radical new imaging technique, Sydney archaeologists have uncovered a network of unknown temples and an entire city beneath the foliage surrounding Angkor in Cambodia.
 “The laser scanner, or ‘lidar’, had the potential to see through a dense forest canopy and reveal traces of the civilisation remaining on the forest floor, but no-one was entirely sure that it would work, or that there would be anything much to see even if it did.As a map derived from four billion laser measurements of Angkor slowly unfolded on the screen of a high-performance computer, however, we watched in awe as entire cities were revealed for the first time beneath the jungle of northwest Cambodia, and realised that the age of the machete had just drawn to a decisive close,” said leader of the team archaeologist Damian Evans of the University of Sydney, Australia.
The discovery was astounding! Not only was the city much larger than previously thought, but it also contained a much larger population than scientists expected.
“We found that this nicely formally planned grid extends for 35 square kilometers, rather than the 9 kilometers that had previously been mapped from the ground,” Evans said.
“Angkor has been considered to be (among the) cities enclosed by moats or walls, but we found that the town area of the city grids extends far beyond the moat spaces.”

According to Evans the city designed with a plan. The streets ran in a grid exactly east/west or north/south. Each city block was measured exactly 100 meters by 100 meters, with 4 dwellings and 4 rectangular ponds, each pond located north-east of each dwelling. The dwellings, elevated on earthen mounds, were higher than the surrounding rice fields, presumably so they wouldn’t flood during the rainy season. The roads were likewise elevated.

Angkor Wat is a remarkable place full of secrets.

Scientists have long wondered who were the people who built these marvelous buildings, where did they live, how were they so successful in the unforgiving environment of monsoon Asia, and perhaps most importantly, what happened to them?
“At least half a dozen previously undocumented temples have been uncovered in the immediate vicinity of Angkor Wat, which more than two million tourists visit every year, along with a previously unknown urban layout within the very confines of the temple’s moat.

In the remote Kulen mountains to the north of Angkor, where dense forest and extensive mine fields have traditionally frustrated mapping efforts, an entire urban layout has emerged from beneath the vegetation. It corresponds to a previously undiscovered city referred to in thousand-year-old inscriptions as Mahendraparvata.

The newly discovered cities clearly extend beyond the limited lidar coverage that has so far been achieved, and we are currently fundraising for a second lidar mission to extend that coverage and take a first look at a couple of other temple complexes in the region where, we suspect, entire cities also lie undiscovered on the forest floor, ” Evan said.
Lidar can reveal much more. This is just the beginning. Soon archaeologists will unlock more secrets of ancient civilisations.
