Archeology Quest: The Paleolithic Age

Real Science

Ten thousand years ago, humans survived a variety of landscapes without any of the conveniences of modern life: surviving droughts, blizzards, volcanoes, saber-toothed tigers, and cave bears. How did they do it? And more importantly for us — do we still have what it takes to handle even a fraction of those challenges?

Archeology Quest is an episodic documentary game show in which two amateur naturalists compete to prove their ability to survive in the Paleolithic world, using only technology from that time period.

Archeology Quest is created by Real Science, and hosted by Stephanie Sammann and Lorraine Boissoneault.

Stephanie Sammann is the creator of Real Science, a video channel that celebrates the world of animals, ecology, and evolution. With a biology and documentary film background, Stephanie has traveled the world to document everything from sloth conservation in Costa Rica, horse culture in rural and urban Ireland, and deforestation in Borneo. With a knack for science communication, she hopes that showing her audiences the beauty and complexity of the natural world will inspire the next generation of conservationists. In her free time, Stephanie loves cooking, scuba diving, photography, and making ceramic pottery.

Lorraine Boissoneault is a writer and producer for Real Science, where she digs into biology, anatomy, and weird animals. Before joining the team, Lorraine covered everything from archaeology to conservation for National Geographic, Smithsonian Magazine, The Atlantic, The New Yorker, and other publications. Her writing for the PBS “Eons” channel won a Gold Telly in 2021. She’s the author of the nonfiction historical adventure book The Last Voyageurs, a Chicago Book of the Year Award finalist in 2016. In her free time, Lorraine is a fan of camping, sailing, and medieval sword fighting.
