Program Description

The real Indiana Jones was the paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews, who in the 1920s led fossil-hunting expeditions among the towering dunes and desolate cliffs of Mongolia's Gobi desert. Now NOVA joins a team from the American Museum of Natural History as it retraces Andrews' adventures and gathers provocative new evidence about how dinosaurs lived and why they died.
