Digging into the Future-Armenia is an archeological expedition to Armenia. It turns viewers on to the thrill of discovery while making genuine human connections with a people’s past and the present. Armenia is the first journey of a new proposed PBS series that merges archeology’s science and humanity into an hour-long entertaining, educational and cultural adventure that spans the globe. For this adventure Rosendo joins archeologists from UCLA’s Cotsen Institute, which is dedicated to the creation, dissemination, and conservation of archaeological knowledge and heritage. Charles Stanish is the institute’s director and Gregory Areshian is the director of the institute’s Armenia program. Rosendo crisscrosses Armenia to ancient sites where some of the world’s oldest artifacts have been discovered.
