1804MARMES ARCHEOLOGICAL DIGMARMES ARCHEOLOGICAL DIG1972color18 min16mm Presents the engrossing story of the oldest fully documented discovery of early man in the Western hemisphere: the remains of "Marmes Man" found in the hot, dry scablands of southeastern Washington. For seven years Washington State University scientists and their students, under the direction of Richard Daugherty, painstakingly sifted through layer upon layer of silt, volcanic ash and rocks containing human and animal remains and a rich variety of cultural materials. Skeletons ranged in age from 200 to more than 10,000 years of age. Reconstruction of man's past and the nature of his early environment is vividly portrayed.
