I stumbled across this today and thoroughly enjoyed it. The presenter is an archeologist that was on one of the teams that performed the salvage archaeology as Lake Powell filled. Great photos, video and first hand account of The Glen. Thought I'd post it here for anyone else interested. The first hour is his presentation, after that is Q&A.


A slide I pulled from it of a massive ancient puebloan water tank. I'd never heard of such a thing.
