- Theodore de Bry's Engravings from the Virginia Historical Society – In 1590, Theodore de Bry reprinted Thomas Hariot's A briefe and true report of the new found land of Virginia. The text was illustrated with copper-plate engravings by de Bry and his associate, Gysbert van Veen, based on paintings by John White. The engravings signed by van Veen are stylistically identical to those signed by de Bry. The captions that accompany each engraving in the book are usually credited to Thomas Hariot.

Go to Ice Age Discoveries for videos and information about pre-Clovis culture. These two, 30-minute programs present the most recent information about our earliest ancestors:
- Ice Age Discoveries: New Evidence – learn how artifacts, charcoal, and soil, plant and animal remains have led archaeologists to reconsider the evidence and develop new ideas about where the earliest people came from and when they arrived.
- Ice Age Discoveries: The Investigators – features the archaeologists – the “investigators” – and how they are solving history's mysteries. Learn how archaeologists use science and “lines of evidence” to piece history together.
