The work of anthropology professor Jan Simek has been featured in multiple news outlets, including CNN. Simek and colleagues from the University of the South, the US Geological Survey, and Mississippi State University spent about a decade and a half documenting rock art of the Cumberland Plateau, which slices across Tennessee between Chattanooga and Nashville. They found common themes, colors, and depictions across the ninety-four sites, fifty of them underground. Read the story at CNN.com. The Nigeria News, Inside Science, Live Science, Reuters, Huffington Post, NBC News, Chattanooga Times Free Press, and the Chicago Tribune also featured the research.
