Time Team America
Search for Josiah Henson

Time Team America - Search for Josiah Henson

Josiah Henson's 1849 autobiography inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” and galvanized abolitionists. But for 30 years, he was enslaved on what was once a 270-acre plantation run by Isaac Riley. An acre of land and an old house are all that remain. Time Team America descends on an upscale DC suburb, digging for clues beneath the manicured lawn and peeling back layers of the old kitchen floor to tell the story of one of the most important Americans of the 19th century. Search for Josiah Henson…the Man Behind the Story of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, A Time Team America Presentation premieres Tuesday, August 19th at 7:00pm on WTVP-HD 47.1.

Secrets of the Dead
Lost Ships of Rome

Secrets of the Dead Lost Ships of Rome

In 2009 a team of marine archeologists discovered the remains of ancient Roman ships while performing a sonar survey of the seabed around the island of Ventotene. The discovery was astonishing, five ancient Roman ships being discovered, and in pristine condition! Each ship was also laden with exotic goods, so well preserved that they remained exactly as they had been when the Roman crews loaded them. Secrets of the Dead: Lost Ships of Rome airs Wednesday, August 20th at 9:00pm on WTVP-HD 47.1.
