Michael Searcy: The Ancient Fremont Remains Beneath Provo
It may come as a surprise to most people in Provo, Utah whence we broadcast, but there are remains of ancient Fremont Indians all over the place here. You have to know where and how to look (hint: high tech helps), but stick a shovel in the right place and one foot down you'll find the remains of a house filled with pottery, game pieces, dolls, silverware, clothing--even corpses. Right under our own feet we can be reminded that we are not the first people by any means to call this place home--and the same goes for almost any place in America. Today's Thinking Aloud features a BYU archeologist who has been leading teams in uncovering this rich local heritage.—Original airdate: 11/12/2015
