Nevada rock art, Illinois archaeology


(1) One of the greatest places to see rock art is Nevada, which has lots of rock faces, a dry climate that preserves it, and limited vegetation to cover it up.  The Nevada Rock Art Foundation is busy recording what’s there and finding ways to preserve it.  (2) Lots of archaeology goes on in Illinois all the time, outside the attention of most people.  In this segment, the Illinois Archaeological Survey describes how they do that work.  Visit some excavation sites and drop in on the lab where the archaeologists organize, catalog and interpret what they find.
