Digging Deep – the Greatest New Archaeological Discoveries
It's been a tremendous few years in archaeology and we’ll take a close (slide-illustrated) look at some of the most interesting and important discoveries. Here’s just a sampling of topics we’ll touch on: the mysterious “skull cult” at Göbekli Tepe (c. 8,500 BCE); the discovery of the US heavy cruiser, Indianapolis, sunk in 1945; the unearthing of an Aztec warrior wolf; the discovery of the oldest gold hoard in Great Britain (dating from the Iron Age, c. 400-250 BCE); the dawn of Egyptian writing; unlocking the genetics of the cave dwellers (Neanderthals and Denisovans); hidden monoliths at the Avebury henge (UK);  and much more.
