CSI Meets Indiana Jones: How Archaeologists Help Solve Crimes, today from 7-8 p.m. We're all familiar with television programs that figure out whodunit through careful crime scene analysis. But how do police officers know what to look for? How do they interpret the results? For some types of information, anthropology plays a big role! Join us as Alaska's State Archaeologist, Dave McMahan, explains the role anthropology plays in training law enforcement officials and helping solve crimes.
