I believe this site featured in a recent Archaeology film series which I
caught a bit of several weeks ago on TVOntario. If so, you could write
Archaeological Institute of America as they are the ones who underwrite
the Archaeology series, which is also broadcast on the Learning
Channel,too, I think. (I don't have TLC with my cable subscription).
And, of course, check the index for the Institute's publications--both the
professional ones and the popular journal _Archaeology_.

Sorry I can't be more specific.
