[Rock Wall Receding into Background]

Description: Slide of a rock wall built on an unkempt grassy area. The wall has an uneven height, composed of rocks of varying colors and size, and appears to be quite long. It recedes into the background at a sharp angle and appears to meet a tree seen in the distance. Accompanying information assigns the name "Black's Fort" to the location, but there is no other significant information supplied.

[Wooden Lodge Past Wire Fence and Grassy Field]

Description: Slide of small, single-story structure constructed out of horizontal wooden posts. The gable roof is missing its pediment, revealing a dark interior. On both sides, it is flanked by a short rock wall, with tall, unkempt grasses crowding it. Additionally, there appears to be a kind of outdoor chimney on the left side of the house, behind the wall. Near the foreground, a few species of flowers can be seen, as well as a wire fence. Accompanying information assigns the name "Black's Fort" to the location.

[Wide Shot Photograph of a Landscape]

Description: Slide of a large expanse of terrain. A tall sloping hill is visible in the background across the width of the photograph. Several lines of trees in succession can also be seen running the width of the image, with large gaps formed by the areas which they do not occupy. In the very distance, on the left, there appears to be a single-story structure. Its gabled and light-colored roof can be seen, as well as a chimney and perhaps a patio, nestled among a group of leafy trees.

[Metal Tool Touching Spinal Column]

Description: Slide of a partial spinal column within a lightly excavated mound of dirt. An upturned hand on the top left holds a slender metal utensil, as if about to touch the specimen. In the back right corner, slightly out of focus, an array of both fractured and whole bones can be seen. Some of these appear to have a head, similar to that of a femur or other bones found in limbs.

[Outdoor Scene of Water and Small Waterfall]

Description: Slide of a pool of water lying next to and below what appears to be a walking path of sorts, judging by the picket fence that lines the top of the hill. From a center spot near the fence, a small stream of water falls down into the water, disturbing it slightly. A large tree is to the right, a short distance away from the edge of the water.
