Time Team: Range Creek

In class we watched the PBS show Time Team America all about the archaeological dig at Range Creek, Utah. In class, you started answering questions on pages 57-58 in your Archaeology packet that go along with the video clip. Be sure you've written these notes on the bottom of pg. 58:
granary = a place for storing grain
pictograph = a picture that represents an idea
midden = an ancient trash pile

Aside from Time Team America, there was a great article in the August 2006 issue of National Geographic all about the area of Range Creek, including some detailed photos of the petroglyphs (rock art), the granaries, and the tools and weapons found there.
