With his aviatorsâ€™ licence in hand, he turned to aerial archaeology in 1988 and criss-crossed Germany from East to West, focusing mainly on the former border that divided the country during the Cold War. A multi-talented figure, he founded a publishing house that is now one of the most established in the field of archaeological literature.
