Archaeologists Dig Up An 800-Year-Old Native American Pot. What They Found Inside Is Changing History

Though it might not have seemed very impressive at first glimpse, this little piece of pottery was determined to be about 800 years old.

And inside that pot? Something that changes how we’re looking at extinction, preservation, and food storage, as well as how humans have influenced the planet in their time on it.
