Waziya Ikce Wicasta
Episode 3 Synopsis
On the border between Yukon and Alaska, Jen and Jacob get acquainted with camp life at Little John and participate in their first Wild Archaeology dig, while Dr. Rudy offers his scientific XRF prowess. But they are all surprised to witness the unique relationship between lead archaeologist, Norm Easton, and the Dene people of White River Nation, whose ancestors have occupied the region for over 12,000 years.

Measuring the Past
Waunspe Tani Icagu
Scientific Archaeology depends on data and a“total station” is a great way to collect it. Total stations combine a sophisticated on-board computer, display, traditional theodolite and transit measuring system together with ultra-sensitive laser technology. It allows archaeologists to record points in 3D space to reconstruct the relationship between material in the ground.
