Monday, November 21: Secrets of the Lost Canyon

Salt Lake City, UT – It was called one of the most significant finds in North America in the past 50 years. Nestled in the heart of Central Utah in Range Creek Canyon were the remains of a lost civilization that once thrived in the American Southwest. A new KUED documentary examines this historic discovery.

For 500 years, the Fremont Indians lived in parts of the Great Basin and Colorado Plateau as hunters, gatherers and farmers. They left detailed art and symbols on the stone faces of canyons they inhabited and stored their grain high on cliff walls in well-built granaries that still survive. Then, 800 years ago, the Fremont seemingly disappeared.

A new KUED documentary captures a range of issues and challenges that threaten efforts to understand the past. Join host Doug Fabrizio as he discusses Utah's place in archaeological world history. The documentary, co-producer Ken Verdoia's last, premiers Monday the 21st of November at 8:pm.
