Bluemont VA – This Winchester Star feature story talks about how PBS Religion and Ethics Newsweekly, learned about the Paleo-Indian site and the Native American Church of Virginia through the local newspaper and arranged to film here at the Sanctuary on the Trail yesterday.
From Virginia, PBS Director Lucky Severson, Photography Mark Thalman and Audio Engineer Tony Stewart joined PBS Producer David Tereshchuk from New York, to interview the site’s guardians. The special program, about concentric rings found around the world, will air on PBS Religion and Ethics Newsweekly in late August.
Paleo-Indian site guardians Chris (Comeswithclouds) White and René White (Feather) have volunteered thousands of hours for the past five years to preserve, protect and restore this site. Thermal Luminescence (TL) dating results recently confirms the site was last used 10,470 years ago, making it older than the standing boulders at England’s Stonehenge.
