This video takes you on a virtual tour of archaeology and explains why the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation sponsored archaeology before the Central Arizona Project was built to irrigate the desert. It shows the entire archaeological process from beginning to end: how sites are located, how they are excavated, how artifacts are processed, and what happens to the materials when the project is finished. Combining live action with graphic simulations brings to life the painstaking and detailed study of forgotten remains that is the study of the human past.
