Film Description:Joyce White, co-Director of the Middle Mekong Archaeological Project (MMAP), talks about the origins of the project and gives an overview of the test excavations the team has conducted at a series of cave/rockshelter sites in northern Laos since 2007.

Dr. White is interviewed during the 2010 season at a cave called Tham An Mah near a village called Ban Xieng Mouk just outside of Luang Prabang. The excavation yielded several important Iron Age discoveries that will shed light on MMAP's research on human prehistory in this under-studied region of the world.
