Drone Helps Archaeologists Discover Tomb in Canary Islands with 72 Ancient Skeletons

Recommended Posts

A drone recently helped archaeologists make a huge discovery on the island of Gran Canaria, one of the biggest and most populated of the islands that make up the Canaries.


The archaeologists who made the discovery were part of an amateur archaeology group called “El Legado” (The Legacy), who were on vacation on the island. It is very unlikely they would have found these remains without the use of a drone, since accessing the cave was difficult and required climbing gear.

Drones have become an essential tool for archaeologists for the last few years, especially when equipped with LiDAR.

Read today's article to learn more about the tomb found in the Canaries, as well as how archaeologists are using LiDAR-equipped drones to make new discoveries.
