My guest will be Dr. Monty Dobson.  Monty is the host and producer of the upcoming PBS series, America: From the Ground Up!   A Ph.D. in Archeology from The University of York, in York, England, Monty is currently a visiting assistant professor at Drury University in Springfield, Missouri. 


The series follows Monty as he digs into and investigates the history of America from the ground up.  Each episode explores archaeological sites and uses the clues from the past to tell the hidden history of America.  From exploring the mystery of the disappearance of the massive Native American city Cahokia to scuba diving for clues to Revolutionary War naval battles on the Great Lakes, listeners to the broadcast will learn about America from a unique perspective.  Time permitting, we’ll discuss the colonial fur trade, the French Indian War, the American Revolution and the Civil War.
