Massive Structure Found ‘Hiding In Plain Sight’ At Ancient Site Of Petra

From National Public Radio by Merrit Kennedy:

“Using Google Earth, satellite imagery and drones, researchers have discovered a monumental structure amid the world-famous ruins of Petra, Jordan.

It was apparently “hiding in plain sight” — a structure the size of an Olympic-size pool “just south of the city center, and archaeologists have missed this for 150, 200 years,” researcher Sarah Parcak tells The Two-Way. The area sees huge crowds of visitors, with half a million tourists descending on Petra annually.”
