Hidden Gold – California’s Gold (605)

Huell looks beneath the surface of our state. First he goes to the prehistoric La Brea Tar Pits in the heart of Los Angeles, where prehistoric species of mammals and plants of California have been preserved in tar for thousands of years. Next, he visits California’s version of Plymouth Rock–the Presidio of San Diego–and watches as an excavation uncovers all sorts of amazing relics from this location, the first European settlement in California.
