wiw vol 29 Ice Age Death Trap

2012 - 53 minutes - Nova Special
Streaming Netflix

Program Description

In the Rocky Mountains, archeologists uncover a unique fossil site packed with astonishingly well-preserved bones of mammoths, mastodons, and other giant extinct beasts. The discovery opens a highly focused window on the vanished world of the Ice Age in North America.

This was such an interesting special. I always have been in love with archaeology and think it would be so amazing to uncover bones from hundreds of thousands of years ago. Can you imagine finding and holding one of those bones?

I really loved this special, you can also watch it online on PBS if you don't have streaming Netflix.
