Episode(s):Carolina Stories: Finding Clovis
Production Date(s):2008
Synopsis:Finding Clovis takes viewers on an archeological adventure at the Topper dig site in Allendale County, South Carolina. Famous for Clovis and pre-Clovis artifacts there is recent evidence that may support the theory that a comet suddenly wiped out the Clovis culture 13,000 years ago. The Topper dig annually attracts scientists, students, volunteers, and observers. As part of Finding Clovis, world-renowned scientists such as Allen West and Dennis Stanford from The Smithsonian; David Anderson, Scott Jones, and Al Goodyear from the University of South Carolina will offer their opinions about these significant first Americans—where they came from, how they lived, and what may have been their fate.
