A Summary of Remote Sensing Environmental Archaeology in the Study of Ancient Settlements

Jiegui Wang, Li Wu, Fei Gao, Chao Gao and Xinyuan Wang

Abstract

From an interdisciplinary point of view, this article discusses the application of a remote sensing environmental archaeology method in the study of ancient settlements by investigating the development and revolution of archaeology as well as the idea of remote sensing environmental archaeology. The study proposes a new method of multi-source information composition of remote sensing environmental archaeology to identify ancient settlements under the support of spatial analysis. Based on the characteristics of ancient settlements and their spatial relationship with their surroundings, remote sensing image recognition and geospatial analysis are applied to obtain the multi-source information composition of remote sensing environmental archaeology and then effectively determine the existence and the location of ancient settlements. In combination with field validation, the identification can be achieved. Based on the discussions, the technological integration of the remote sensing environmental archaeology method and its future application in the archaeology of ancient settlements are further explored.
