The Human Experience
Audio vignettes about us
What have we learned about ourselves as human beings? Who are we and why do we do what we do? Explore these questions in an audio essay series created by a group of anthropologists at the University of New Mexico. These essays were prepared in order to share with people everywhere the wisdom gained through the study of human cultures and behavior around the world.
The programs listed below were written by Dr. Robert D. Leonard and Mr. Anton Daughters, narrated by Anton Daughters, and produced by Paul Ingles, Kathleen Sabo and Anton Daughters.

This show targets an audience interested in archaeology. It explores myths surrounding this exotic, often misunderstood field and acquaints listeners with the contemporary practice of unearthing the human past. Themes range from Dr. Schuldenrein’s own “Indiana Jones”-like adventures in the land of the Bible to his team’s archaeological forensics effort to unearth Kurdish mass graves in Iraq. That undertaking helped convict Saddam Hussein in 2006. Topical issues contribute to the evolution vs. creationism controversy based on updated fossil records and innovative DNA studies. An episode highlights the main funding source for archaeology in the U.S. (Hint: the oil and gas industry). Experts reveal the latest high-tech approaches to buried archaeological landscapes that provide clues to understanding climate change, past, present and future. Indiana Jones: Myth, Reality and 21st Century Archaeology is broadcast live every Wednesday at 3 PM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel.

Film Festivals Worldwide
Festivals celebrating the genre of archaeological film are held regularly in a variety of countries. These festivals provide a showcase for film and video makers and a venue for distributors and the public to examine their work. We at Archaeological Legacy Institute are pleased to post festival information here for those who might like to attend a festival or submit film and video productions for screening.
Archaeology has broad educational appeal and application. Not only is it fun for students, but it also can be directly related to a variety of subjects and content standards, such as history, geography, social studies, biology, and science. Archaeology is also a critically important source of information about the human past, offering us a unique perspective on our human identity and our common heritage with people all around the world. The information directory we are creating here is intended to assist teachers in applying archaeology as an instructional tool for their students.
This page is a work in progress! Please bear with us as we work to get it up and running.
Here you will find links to activities from various archaeological based resources. These activities are taken directly from their source and their intended purpose is to be used in the classroom.
In this section, one will find resources related to opportunities for educators to improve their credentials and add experience to their resume.
Resources for educators to use in the field to reinforce the educational content such as worksheets, fact sheets and other activities can be found here.
In this category there are resources which lead directly to either interactive websites, videos or other new interactive interfaces the user(s) can become engaged with archaeological based material.

Film Production Services
Film is a very powerful medium for delivering important perspectives, concepts and information. ALI employs a team of highly capable film makers and production staff to carry out production services:
Almost from its beginning, ALI has engaged in film and video production in the performance of its nonprofit mission to tell the human story. We think the pieces we make should be informative and trustworthy, for sure, but beyond that they should be fun to watch. Over the years we have gained lots of experience in this area and we aim to get better and better at what we do. Here below is a list of our in-house productions, compiled by year.

About Us: Archaeological Legacy Institute (ALI) is a tax-exempt nonprofit organization based in Eugene, Oregon. Our streaming-media website and chief project, The Archaeology Channel (TAC), launched 14 years ago, has become one of the world’s most popular websites relating to archaeology and the human cultural heritage, with annual traffic exceeding one million page views. A closely-related spinoff of TAC is The Archaeology Channel International Film and Video Festival, produced each spring at The Shedd Institute in downtown Eugene. TAC Festival is the only juried international film competition for our genre in the Western Hemisphere and attracts participation from all over the world. In 2010, ALI launched its first cable TV programming distributed over a growing nationwide network of stations.
Our Volunteers: ALI, TAC, and our other programs could not operate without the generosity and hard work of our volunteers, to whom we express our heartfelt gratitude. Dozens of them are helping us in one way or another, both locally (Eugene, Oregon) and around the world. Through their excitement and their contributions, these unselfish and skilled individuals make it possible for us to share with all the benefits of archaeology and the diverse perspectives of cultures around the world.
