Arizona roadside prehistoric site; Tom Dillehay interview


(1) In an area of northeastern Arizona formerly used by the Zuni, Hopi, Apache, and Navaho, archaeologists with the Arizona Department of Transportation explore a prehistoric habitation site, the Beethoven Site.  The area was slated for future highway construction work.  (2) At TAC Festival 2013, Rick Pettigrew interviews Keynote Speaker Tom Dillehay, whose work at the Monte Verde Site in Chile overturned the Clovis-First hypothesis for the peopling of the Americas.  He explains how it took two decades of persistent research to accomplish this feat.
