Located in present day Collinsville, Illinois is Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site, which was once home to the largest city north of Mexico from 700 to 1400 A.D. Settled by the Mississippian people, today their decline remains a mystery. First visited in 1811 by traveler Henry Brackenridge and considered the “discoverer of Cahokia” only in the sense that he wrote several papers and articles about the findings to the public’s attention. After walking around the mounds, Brackenridge described that the locations of the last inhabitants were clearly visible to him, as were fragments of their tools and utensils. Many extensive archeological excavations and several case study theories have come about through the years as to why this magnificent ancient metropolis faced such demise.

The one-minute heritage video titled ‘Heritage Minutes: Terry Fox’ goes on to talk about Fox’s journey through Canada with an amputated leg while raising money for cancer research. The video shows not only Fox but many people supporting his journey which not only included Canadians watching his marathon but also family members who came along during the journey and assisting with keeping track of funds, his length and also his health. It is evident that this had taken place in Canada as there were many Canadian symbols throughout the film and was also mentioned. However, it is hard to tell the exact location as to where everything took place. We can notice the various weather conditions that were seen throughout the film which ranged from rainy to sunny days. We can also note that the video had been filmed during many times of the day. In the beginning, we see Fox running on an empty road before sunrise and then we progress into a busier time period

Jackson, Wyoming was typical small town America. You couldn't spit without hitting a building or several. Yet, unlike most small towns, Jackson was a thriving tourist destination as it served as a gateway to the Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and National Elk Refuge. Though the town itself only hosted close to ten thousand souls. Compared to Miami, Jackson was quaint and serene, his own personal refuge. As sheriff his worst fear was the occasional drunk tourist or rowdy local, as opposed to a barrage of lead. He may still wear his vest, but at least he didn’t have to pop anxiety pills anymore. Well, at least now when he took them it wasn’t because of having lived in Miami.
1970-1990 October 31, 1988 - Poverty Point National Monument in Louisiana is established by President Ronald Reagan in order to preserve some of the most extensive earthworks from prehistoric times in North America.

Peele also use the “Sunken Place” as a symbol for the systemic racism that “steals the agency” of Black Africans Americans in today society. The “Sunken Place” is basically a black hole of emptiness that strips Chris of his capability to control his body and lets him only watch the life his body remains living as a passenger. In a quote stated by Daniel Kaluuya, “Just feeling, that’s how being black sometimes feels like. You can’t say what you want to say because you may lose your job and you’re paralyzed in your life. You know? You’re paralyzed in your life, you want to express an emotion, and then it comes out in rage elsewhere, because you internalized it, because you can’t live your truth, and that’s what I’m trying to say is so amazing.”

Primary Qualitative and Quantitative data from a wide range of sources can be analysed to help to evaluate the market of York Dungeons. “Qualitative research examines the attitudes, feelings and motivations of product users” (Proctor, 2012) Focus groups is one method of collecting this type of less structured data which is also usually more flexible than quantitative research.
