This week, we get some results from the Scan Pyramids Project in Egypt, we take a look at some amazing underwater 3D photography of more than 40 shipwrecks in the Black Sea, we fly drones over the Plain of Jars in Laos, and we learn just how long ago humans have colonized Australia.
Also, Jesus’s Tomb is opened for the first time in centuries, recurring earthquakes threaten Italy’s heritage, the Smithsonian is calling for contributions, high resolution photography give new insights into an old medieval manuscript, and we commemorate the 11th of November in France.
