Television program produced by Oregon Public Broadcasting follows Dr. Luther Cressman, a researcher and writer of western United States prehistory, as he explores the caves of southeastern Oregon. Segments from a 1939 film included in the program document the first archaeological excavations at Roaring Spring Cave and Fort Rock Cave. Artifacts discovered in these caves such as the bones of extinct animals an atlatl, or throwing stick, woven basketry fragments and sagebrush sandals, carbon dated to 13,000 years ago enabled Dr. Cressman to describe the lives of the earliest inhabitants of the Northern Great Basin.
