Ice Age Discoveries: The Investigators

Recent archaeological digs have provided compelling evidence that humans inhabited Virginia at least 18,000 years ago, well before the Clovis culture and thousands of years before previously thought. For many years, evidence indicated that people arrived in North America approximately 13,500 years ago, but digs along the Nottoway River in south-central Virginia provide clues about earlier habitation in the Americas.
This 30-minute program - Ice Age Discoveries: The Investigators - features the archaeologists - the "investigators" - and how they are solving history's mysteries. Learn how archaeologists use science and "lines of evidence" to piece history together.
How are archaeologists solving history's mysteries? What are archaeologists finding, how do they do their work using the scientific method, and what is the latest evidence about the people who lived here and knew this land before us?
