Drone ArcheologyThe emerging technology of drone camera photography has recorded yet another milestone in its brief but brilliant career. Bill Clary, a former member of the American armed forces, piloted the drone via remote control over the remote desert terrain of southern Utah, and discovered a brand new treasure of trove of Native American art.
This amazing find has archaeologists and droneography experts alike in a whirlwind of excitement and activity. The 20 petroglyphs (rock carvings) which Clary discovered via drone camera are thought to be evidence of the so-called “Basket Maker” people.
The “Basket Makers” were an extremely elusive and mysterious tribe of primeval Native Americans, about whom very little is known. The new finding casts a bit of light on their existence and possible activities in the Southern Utah desert so many moons ago.
Bill Clary, who is now the proud owner and operator of his own remote controlled drone camera service “Got Aerial“, was quick to contact local scientists and archaeological researchers in the region.
The petroglyphs were identified as the work of the “Basket Makers” on the basis of their depicting human figures with very broad shoulders and long skinny legs. This present finding is yet more proof of the superior capacity for discovery that drone camera technology has brought mankind.
