Melting glaciers and permafrost disclose archaeological discoveries

E. James Dixon recorded an interview with National Public Radio (NPR) in January about the research that he and William Manley are conducting on the archaeological potential of snow and ice. A small portion of that interview was broadcast on NPR's All Things Considered, discussing the fantastic preservation of artifacts recovered from frozen contexts. Dixon and Manley’s research has recently come to the fore of public attention through front-page stories in major newspapers such as the LA Times, Vancouver Sun, Miami Herald, Charlotte Observer, and Seattle Times.
