In tonight's episode airing on SDPB-TV, “The Bones of Badger Hills,”  Adrien Hannus assists a team digging at a site in western Oklahoma. Hannus is professor of anthropology and director of the Archeology Laboratory at Augustana College in Sioux Falls.

The team is working to uncover the secrets of buffalo hunters who roamed the Great Plains ten thousand years ago. Hannus says they’re trying to pick the brains of people who are no longer there. He joined Dakota Midday and discussed the Badger Hole site and his role in the episode.
