Archaeologist combs through Utah abandoned town
A New York anthropologist is combing through an old townsite in Utah's Skull Valley looking for clues to what life was like in the abandoned town.

Benjamin Pykles, a professor at the State University of New York, is conducting the first archaeological survey of Iosepa (pronounced yo-see-pa) , a mostly Polynesian community that survived 28 years.
