      Landing After Hours: Prehistoric Missouri Agriculture

      Archaeologists and botanists have been working together for decades to explain the beginnings of agriculture in Missouri. Thousands of years ago, people experimented with the plants they relied on to provide food, medicine, shelter and clothing. The results of their experiments can be detected in different forms in the archaeological record dating to hundreds of years before corn and beans were introduced from Mexico. Native crops include sunflower, local versions of squash and quinoa, tobacco and other plants that might be growing in your backyard today.

      The presenter is Gina Powell, Ph.D., who is currently working as an archaeologist for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Kansas City.
