From PBS - At Badger Hole, Oklahoma, the Time Team America crew excavates what may be the largest Folsom-period bison kill site in North America. Long extinct, Bison Antiquus roamed the plains 10,000 years ago. How were Paleoindian hunters able to kill so many of these massive bison--weighing 1500 pounds each--without the help of bows and arrows or even horses? The lives of these ancient ancestors seem elusive, but by investigating bison bones, arrowheads and more, the Team discovers clues about their habitat, hunting range, and their ingenuity that will help us understand them.
From PBS - Josiah Henson's 1849 autobiography inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and galvanized abolitionists. But for 30 years, he was enslaved here, on what was once a 270-acre plantation run by Isaac Riley. An acre of land and an old house are all that remain. Time Team America descends on an upscale DC suburb, digging for clues beneath the manicured lawn, and peeling back layers of the old kitchen floor to tell the story of one of the most important Americans of the 19th century.
