Archaeology is by definition the story of the past. But what we learn from it is quite often new and unexpected. Case in point: archaeological studies of Native American communities in the South that predate European exploration, or even the invention of written language. Anthropologist David Anderson will talk about what’s new in Southern archaeology at the University of Tennessee’s Pregame Showcase on November 7.

WUOT-FM has been chosen as one of only 15 public radio stations nationwide to participate in the Localore: Finding America project.  A sister to our Tenn Words project, TruckBeat will allow us to go further into our community to talk to the people and uncover the stories that make East Tennessee so interesting and unique.
