Time Team America Full Episode Guide

  • Located in the remote Book Cliffs region of eastern Utah, Range Creek is the kind of site archaeologists dream about. The sage-covered meadows and rocky cliffs are scattered with the remnants of an ancient people: pit houses half-buried in the sand, mysterious petroglyphs scratched into the rock walls and bits of pottery and stone tools lying where they were dropped over a thousand years ago. Best of all, most of the hundreds of archaeological sites remain virtually untouched, providing a rare opportunity to find out what may have happened to the Freemont people who once flourished here. Time Team probes the ground, scales the cliffs and learns what life was like in these canyons a thousand years ago.

  • An exploration for any remains of the first US town founded by former slaves, back in 1836 in New Philadelphia, Illinois. Includes a schoolhouse where the children were all taught.

  • The team heads to South Carolina where they will search the swamps for evidence of the earliest human inhabitants of North America.
