Lost Cities Revealed with Albert Lin

In this episode of “Lost Cities Revealed With Albert Lin,” airing on Nat Geo on Thursday May 2, the renowned explorer and scientist takes viewers on a journey to Israel, Scotland, and Sudan as he uncovers hidden secrets beneath the surface. Albert Lin, a National Geographic Explorer and Research Scientist at the University of California, San Diego, is known for his innovative use of satellite imagery and ground-penetrating radar to explore some of the world’s most remote and ancient sites.

Lin first gained recognition in 2009 when he embarked on a quest to find the tomb of Genghis Khan, the notorious 13th-century conqueror. Although he did not find Khan’s remains, Lin’s work in Mongolia led to interesting archaeological discoveries and popularized the use of crowdsourcing in satellite image analysis. Lin’s passion for exploration and his unique approach to uncovering lost cities and ancient mysteries have earned him numerous accolades, including being named National Geographic Adventure Magazine’s “2010 Readers Choice Adventurer of the Year.”
