Beyond The History and Archaeology Headlines.jpg

On Friday, Dec. 7th, 2018 Chris took this show on the radio. He’s doing a new show every Friday from 12pm to 1pm PST. Unfortunately the equipment that normally records the live broadcast went down before the show and no one noticed.

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.

A 5000 Year Old Burial Site in Kenya with Elizabeth Sawchuk - TAS 49

Beyond The History and Archaeology Headlines.jpg

5000 years ago pastoralists in Kenya created a burial site with a specific plan. For at least the next 400 years, possibly as long as 800 years, over 500 people of all ages and classes were buried with amazing precision and care. With no system of writing it's unclear how they accomplished this. Dr. Elizabeth Sawchuk, one of the researchers on the project, gives us some insight into life around Lake Turkana 5000 years ago and about the people buried there.

Long and usually skinny, lithophones are rocks that are either natural or have been shaped to produce certain sounds or notes. On today's episode we talk to Marilyn Martorano about her research into lithophones in the American Southwest.
