Nashville, Tennessee audio tour: Spirits of the Ancient South

About the Tour

Twenty years ago a bulldozer breaking ground to build a new library in Brentwood Tennessee uncovered the human remains that were the skeleton key that would unlock deep mysteries of the ancient south.

Learn what one curious local discovered about the fascinating lives of the ancients as you stroll along the paved trail at the front of the library, then follow across Knox Valley Drive and Little Harpeth River.
