Make, Create, Innovate explores how technology is changing one of our older disciplines—archaeology. We meet engineers developing new sonar-based robots to help with underwater exploration, and we meet German archaeologists, Benjamin Ducke and Marco Block-Berlitz, who are pioneering the use of their 'archaeocopter' to scan and model archaeological sites and recreate them in 3D.
