Millions of archaeological sites around the world await discovery. Conflict, looting, encroachment and environmental change threaten them. The solution? Crowdsourcing, state-of-the-art computing and mapping technologies, open-source data and community hubs of citizen archaeologists on the ground.

Through GlobalXplorer°, founded by Dr. Sarah Parcak, virtual citizen archaeologists based anywhere in the world, including Birmingham, assist with local field work. As new cultural heritage data is uncovered, a global platform makes it accessible to all. GlobalXplorer° began with Peru and is scaling up country by country. Cool, right?

Seating is limited, get tickets at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bham-now-bold-speaker-series-dr-sarah-parcak-globalxplorer-tickets-50006539907
