Time Team America heads to the picturesque and remote canyons of southern Utah to examine what remains of the Fremont Indians who lived there 1,000 years ago. The Fremont stashed their food in clay granaries high on the cliffs of these canyons. They entered their underground homes through a hole in the ceiling, and they decorated rock walls with petroglyphs that remain a mystery to this day. Utah’s state archaeologist calls in Time Team America to examine some of the most pristine and puzzling archaeology in the United States. The team probes the ground, scales the cliffs, and learns what life was like in these canyons a thousand years ago.
