Missing bodies in the Shrewsbury Chapel vault — 4 Comments

  1. Has anyone considered looking for these types of structures with the technology being used to find more of Egypt’s historical sites? This may be a way of providing more information before excavating such tombs. I am not an archaeologist, so forgive me if there is something I’m missing by making the suggestion. I watched the show on the history channel and was wondering if it could be successfully used in other regions for the same purpose.

    “Satellites orbiting 400 miles above earth have revealed numerous hidden ancient sites across Egypt, including 17 pyramids, 1,000 tombs and 3,100 settlements, the BBC reported this week. The pioneering project, which fused cutting-edge infrared imaging with the historically low-tech field of archaeology, was funded by a grant from the BBC and spearheaded by Sarah Parcak, an Egyptologist and assistant professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.”
