How do archaeologists go about choosing where to dig? What research must be conducted, and what preparations must be made, before the actual excavations begin? This documentary examines the challenges and triumphs of the research team that worked for four years to find the remains of Fort St. Joseph, a structure originally built by 17th-century French colonists in what is now Niles, Michigan. Viewers will learn about several excavation techniques and preparatory methods, including the use of ground-penetrating radar and the removal of excess water from a 2,200-square-meter area where Western Michigan University anthropologists Dr. Michael Nassaney and Dr. William Cremin believed the fort was located.
