Archaeology in Shawnee Lookout

Shawnee Lookout has been a center of activity since prehistoric times. Dr. Ken Tankersley talks about the University of Cincinnati summer field school he leads there. Evidence recovered from this archaeological dig indicate that this site has been continuously inhabited by Native Americans from the time humans first arrived in the Ohio Valley until the time of European contact. Dr. Tankersley explains how scientists know that the living conditions on the site changed over time and how the people adapted to those changes.
