In England, more archaeological sites are discovered through aerial photography than by any other means. The first part of this book tells the story of the balloonists who pioneered the airborne camera. The second reveals how two world wars developed the 'one-eyed Mata Hari of the blitzkrieg era' - a process to which archaeologists contributed. Extensively illustrated with archival and modern colour photographs, this engaging story of adventure and discovery will appeal to the specialist and lay reader alike.
