Inside Hidden Cave
Nevada

Hidden Cave is a small cave in the remote Nevada desert that has provided archaeologists with important information about the lifeways of Nevada's ancient inhabitants.  The cave was used for most of the Holocene, but unlike many other caves, it seems to have been used for storage rather than as a place to live. 

This panorama shows the inside of the cave and a couple of the archaeological trenches that were excavated there and preserved for the posterity.  The neat walls surrounding the viewer are the meticulously excavated sides of the archaeological trench.  Look carefully to see the layers of aeolian loess that have collected through the centuries.  These layers allow archaeologists to associate artifacts with one another and to date the progression of prehistoric use of the cave.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
