Collapse of ancient city’s water system may have led to its demise | Ars Technica
Their model network had 1013 edges (including excavated canals, embankments, dikes, and so forth serving to control and direct the flow of water) and 617 nodes (canal confluences or bifurcations, reservoirs, temple moats), which represent points at which edges meet or terminate

Laser Scans Unveil a Network of Ancient Cities in Cambodia
a consortium of scholars called the Cambodian Archaeological Lidar Initiative (CALI), which uses a technology known as lidar to shoot ultraquick pulses of light at the ground from lasers mounted on helicopters. The way they bounce back can show the presence of subtle gradations in the landscape, indicating places where past civilizations altered their environment, even if buried beneath thick vegetation or other obstructions. The soft-spoken, fedora-clad Mr. Mackey, a 14-year veteran of fieldwork here, noted that before lidar’s availability, an accurate ground survey of archaeological features in the Cambodian landscape entailed years or even decades of work.

10,500 BC - Who lived on Earth? March 2006 from Scribd Website
Did you know that all the worldΓÇÖs most ancient monuments ...line up with the star systems: Orion, Leo and Draco? "Giza" The Egyptian pyramids are in the exact shape of the Orion constellation. (luminance reflected in the size of each pyramid) The central (once hidden and secret) shafts of the great pyramid all point to Orion, Sirius, Draco, Leo. You might think that the Sphinx is only 6000 some odd years old, but itΓÇÖs not. Scientists now know that itΓÇÖs about 12,500 years old according to the physical wear of the rocks themselves from thousands of years of heavy rain fall weathering. (Studies by John Anthony West and Prof. Robert Shock, Boston University) For the last few thousands of years, Egypt has been DRY, so how did the rocks become SO heavily weathered by RAIN WATER? (Not wind erosion) If you go back to 10,500 BC, you have your answers. If you follow the precession of the Earth (the slow wobble of the Earth over thousands of years around the North Star) you will notice that
