The people known to archaeologists as "Clovis" were widely thought to be the first people to migrate to North America. Where did they come from and how did they get here? Also, when did they get here? These questions remain unanswered in North American Prehistory but we're getting a lot closer. Dr. David Kilby joins us to talk theories and some of the latest evidence.
The type site of the Clovis Culture, Blackwater Draw has been researched by hundreds of people and numerous institutions and is still shedding light on a time we know little about.
The Rimrock Draw site in southeastern Oregon is changing what archaeologists know about the first people to live in Oregon. It presents some unique challenges and opportunities, and ongoing research has been made possible through public support from OAS.

Today we catch up with Ken on his summer dig and talk about Mummies and actual archaeological controversies. Did Indiana just discover a mummy, or is it more media hype than truth? Also, were the Clovis actually here first, or was there someone else her before them? All this on episode 15 of the Archaeological Fantasies Podcast.
