Wild Archaeology

The archaeological record of the First Peoples of North America is scattered, fragmented, and could be lost forever. Guided by Indigenous archaeologist, Dr. Rudy Reimer (Squamish), and two adventure loving co-hosts Jenifer Brousseau (Ojibway/French) and Jacob Pratt (Dakota/ Saulteaux), we are taken on a quest through the mountains, waterways, plains, and Arctic landscapes of Canada's ancient archaeological record to discover first-hand the untold story of the original peoples of North America. For the first time in archaeological history twelve thousand years of human inhabitation of this land is vividly brought to life through thirteen episodes of Wild Archaeology.
