AboutThree young kids venture outside their 2-D animated world to learn about early Alabama history for their upcoming school report. Aided by their hyper-intelligent robotic friend Roto and a magical portal, they visit some of Alabama’s historic sites to learn about Native American societies, early settlers, and the beginning of Alabama’s statehood. With the help of local archaeologists and historians they just might make it back home in time to get to school and turn in their report! APT produced this Learning Adventure in collaboration with the Alabama Department of Archives and History, Alabama Historical Commission, Moundville Archaeological Park, The Poarch Band of Creek Indians, and the University of South Alabama Archaeology Museum.
