The ASU Teotihuacan Research Laboratory was the site of filming for a documentary on Saturday, August 22. The production company, Story House, was filming on behalf of German national television (ZDF). The resulting program will air through the German show "TerraX" and in the US through the PBS series "Secrets of the Dead." The segments in the lab focus on the work of archaeologist David Carballo (Boston University) and bioarchaeologist Rebecca Storey (University of Houston) in the Tlajinga neighborhood of ancient Teotihuacan, and its burials.
