Strata: Portraits of Humanity, February 2015 (Archaeology in 12 Minutes; Photographing the Invisible)

(1) Christian Ris explains the story of archaeology, its challenges and major advances in a narrative style with numerous archived images. People always have been interested in our past, but only since the Nineteenth Century has archaeology become a recognized science. (2) Using black light and intricate exploitation of digital photography, the walls of the catacombs of Kom el-Shougafa in Alexandria, the mummies of the Taklamakan Desert in China and an Etruscan sarcophagus all reveal pictorial complexity that is barely perceptible to the naked eye.
