Location: Pennsylvania, USA       Length: 21 min.

This film is a look into the fifty-year practice of the now historic legislation, the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, in Pennsylvania.  Traveling across the state, from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia with stops along the way, we look at some of the archaeological sites that have helped strengthen and revolutionize our understanding of the potential for buried landscapes beneath our feet.  Spanning nearly 16,000 years of human life, we highlight five Pennsylvania archaeological sites, asking the question, "what lies beneath your feet?"
