The Silk Road

Archaeologist, photographer, and author Michael Frachetti researches Asia’s ancient Silk Roads to understand Central Asian societies and their unique role in shaping ancient and modern civilization. He uses high-resolution satellite imagery, 3-D modeling, and computer simulations to help predict, discover, and document the ancient archaeology of Central Asia, while studying the relationship between societies and their impact on extreme environments like deserts, high mountains, etc. (bio courtesy of National Geographic)
