Owyhee Petroglyphs


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Humans lived in the caves of the remote Owyhee River Valley as long as 12,000 years ago. Artifacts and petroglyphs offer clues to this little-studied people, but money for research is scarce and looting is damaging the evidence.

First Broadcast: 2000
Producer: Jim Newman
