Strata: Portraits of Humanity, March 2018 (On Nikumaroro in search of Amelia Earhart; Medieval French abbey)

(1) The 2017 expedition to Nikumaroro in search of Amelia Earhart was a truly memorable experience for ALI Director Rick Pettigrew. (2) The abbey of St. Michel de Cuxa in the border region of France and Spain came into being over 1000 years ago, when neither France nor Spain existed as we know them.

Now they can recreate on screen the successive abbeys predating the one standing today.
