Connect begins its April line up with author and architecture professor Baker H. Morrow, who shares his recent book "The South American Expeditions: 1540 to 1545." In it, Baker translates 16th century explorer Cabeza De Vaca's journals from his South American explorations. Prior to this translation, many ideas and travels associated with De Vaca were unknown.
Connect airs Thursday, April 19 at 7 p.m. on New Mexico PBS 5.1 and Sunday, April 22 at 5 p.m. on New Mexico PBS 9.1.
Also, Bruce Huckell, associate professor in the UNM Anthropology Department, presents a detective story that brings us closer to discovering the climatic and environmental conditions of one the earliest groups to settle in North America, the Folsom People, nearly 11,000 years ago. In addition, Sanjay Krishna, professor at UNM's Center for High Technology Materials, talks about technology that may allow doctors to non-invasively detect skin cancer.
