The Bones of Badger Hole

Special | 55m 3s

In Oklahoma, the bones of massive 10,000-year-old bison mingle with the remnants of early human-made weapons. Working against a three-day deadline, Time Team America explores what might be the largest bison kill site in North America from the Folsom period. What strategies did hunters use against these mammoth beasts before the advent of bows and arrows? What can these bison bones teach us?
