The Great Outdoors: Rimrock Dig

For almost a century, the dominant theory in archaeology claimed that the first people to live in North America came via a land bridge across the Bering Strait, from what is now Asia to Alaska and down into the continental United States.

However, in this week’s Great Outdoors, Brian Jennings takes us to a new dig site just east of Bend that is debunking that theory and showing that Native Americans were here long before others migrated from Asia.

A special thanks to our Great Outdoors sponsor Camp Abbot Trading Company in Sunriver for giving us the time and resources to explore the lakes, rivers and mountains across our beautiful state every Wednesday night on Central Oregon Daily.
