The ancient Adena Culture of Kentucky and surrounding states is renowned for its massive burial mounds and exquisite art works. But the lives of Adena people are shrouded in mystery because only three habitation sites have been found. Where did they live? Apparently, modern farming has destroyed most of their archaeological traces. In this video, Dr. Berle Clay examines the search for rare Adena settlements, which could tell archaeologists much abut the lifeways of American Indians who lived in Kentucky over 2000 years ago.

This video documents how two sciences, archaeology and paleoecology, came together in a research project that confirmed archaeologists' ideas about the changing land use patterns of the First Americans along the western edge of the Appalachian Mountains. Archaeologist Cecil Ison takes viewers to a spectacular site on the Daniel Boone National Forest where soil core studies show how American Indians used fire to manage the environment for over 3,000 years. This understanding of ancient practices will help guide forest management for the future.

This video tells the story of the ancient hydraulis and its modern reconstruction and includes a performance of this remarkable instrument.

Pompeii is well known for its rich archaeological record sealed by volcanic deposits in A.D. 79. But what was the history of the city and its inhabitants before this date?

This video introduces the viewer to Pompeii and the goals of the AAPP and describes the field excavation of 2002.
