Abstract: The current deliverable is an overview of the most common remote sensing technologies in use today for archaeology and cultural landscape investigations. Human activities produce landscape alterations and environmental changes that can be recognized also after centuries and millennia even if deposition processes and/or alluvial phenomena tend to mask them continuously. Albeit the traces of “human induced” alterations are generally subtle still they can be revealed by aerial or satellite observations. One of the main advantages of remote sensing techniques is their capability to provide a huge amount of information in a non-invasive, non-destructive way, also protecting and preserving cultural heritage. This report includes also an annex that is a chapter published in a book in press entitled "Sensing the Past" edited by Mansini N., Soldovieri F. (Springer Publisher).
