In 2016, archaeological data-recovery investigations were conducted at the 97-acre north St. Louis site of the future home of the new western headquarters of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. Found artifacts at the site dating from the 1850s – 1950s offer a panoramic view of historical St. Louis and provide a new understanding of our own past. Archaeologist and NGA Site Principal Investigator, Joe Harl, shares how urban archaeology is conducted and discusses findings at the site.

Underground Panoramas is being presented in conjunction with the Museum exhibition, Panoramas of the City, on display at the Museum from September 2, 2017 – August 12, 2018.
