A pioneer of aerial photography, Georg Gerster travelled the world for 50 years, photographing archaeological sites from the air. In this book, which accompanied a major exhibition of Gerster's work in 2005, the archaeologist Charlotte Trumpler introduces 250 photographs of sites, among them the Acropolis, Karnak, the Great Wall of China and the Aztec palaces. The photographs are arranged by the type of site and accompanied by expert captions and notes on memorable flights by Gerster himself.
