Over the past two years, U-M archaeology graduate student Brendan Nash and UMMAA curator Dr. Henry Wright, along with independent researcher Thomas Talbot, have changed the Clovis archaeology narrative with their excavations at the 13,000-year-old Belson site in southwest Michigan—the first-ever Clovis site discovered in the state as well as the earliest.

After the program, Brendan and Thomas hosted a virtual episode premiere party on Facebook Live and YouTube. You can watch a clip here.
