Chapter Summary

This chapter identifies endangered archaeological site in Afghanistan, Lashkari Bazar, and examines the various site pressures upon it through remote sensed survey. A remote sensed survey coupled with a satellite survey enabled an accurate assessment of site condition at Lashkari Bazar without a physical survey. The most shocking revelation is the complete destruction of the northern palace. Urbanization pressures and site damage from the population as well as the military has significantly reduced the overall conditions of the site. Construction of the military base limits the ability to conduct further survey of the northern palace. The conditions at Lashkari Bazar may represent multiple cultural perspectives that one cannot sense without a ground survey.
