Film Description:Unlike many other museums, many collections at the Penn Museum were obtained through scientific excavation by professional archaeologists. The detailed excavation records by curator J. Alden Mason in 1940 provide the opportunity for scholars to continue learning about the indigenous past of Central America. Dr. Clark Erickson, Curator-in-Charge, American Section and Co-Curator of Beneath the Surface, discusses old and new insights from the collection.
