KQED World: Fri, Oct 20, 2017 -- 7:00 AM

TIME TEAM AMERICA wades into the swamps of South Carolina to find the truth about North America's first human inhabitants. Experts debate when people first came to this land. Did they follow big game across the continent 15,000 years ago or did they arrive much, much earlier? TIME TEAM AMERICA has three days to search for evidence that could shed light on the controversy. What they find could rock the archaeological world. Along the way, they glimpse what life was like in North America 15,000 years ago and discover what may have happened to the continent's first people.

Fort Raleigh, North Carolina (Episode #101)

KQED World: Wed, Oct 4, 2017 -- 2:00 AM

In the series premiere, TIME TEAM AMERICA goes in search of the nation's mysterious roots at Roanoke Island. In 1586, the English sent the first group of hardy, hopeful colonists to the New World. When English ships returned with supplies just three years later, they found the settlement empty and the colonists gone. The colonists had left behind only one clue: the word Croatan carved in the gatepost of their fort. It took 20 years for the stunned English to establish another settlement in America. The fate of the Roanoke colonists remains one of the most chilling and maddening questions of American history. TIME TEAM AMERICA spends three days at Fort Raleigh in hot pursuit of archaeological evidence that will put the ghost of Roanoke to rest and establish where the first colony in America was actually located.
