You may have watched and enjoyed the Ice Age movies and gotten a chuckle out of them. But what was the Ice Age? What did the terrain look like? Why were animals so big? Why did all the large animals go extinct? Were there cavemen living during this time? How did people populate North and South American? When did people first arrive and what are the current theories of the peopling of the continents? Join archaeologist Jeremy Freeman as we explore these questions and more on a journey...
In this class students will learn about the geological events related to the Ice Age, the Megafauna that roamed the earth over 10,000 years ago, and the archaeological evidence of Ice Age people.
