Archaeology of the Southern Appalachians

Archaeology of the Southern Appalachians

The southern Appalachian Mountains have been occupied by humans for more than 10,000 years. During this time, first the Native Americans and then later the settlers learned to utilize the natural resources offered in this diverse environmental zone in a number of ways. This program traces the ways in which humans have utilized this area and its resources over time. It includes a discussion of a number of archaeological sites Dr. Anne Rogers and other researchers have investigated and describes ways in which archaeology can contribute to our understanding of the past.
