North Dakota: From the Field to the Museum

 

Location: North Dakota, USA       Length: 20 min.

This film highlights just two of the thousands of projects done in North Dakota since the signing of the National Historic Preservation Act that have contributed to a better understanding of our rich heritage.  The film features the Beacon Island Site, a bison kill site archaeologists believe was occupied during the Paleo-Indian period nearly 12,000 years ago, and Scattered Village, what was once a farming community occupied by the Mandans and Hidatsas around the late 1500s to early 1700s near the city of Mandan, North Dakota.
