Interview with Dr. Susan Knowles, Tennessee Pink Marble

Geology and Cultural Heritage come together in Tennessee in several ways    (think about coal for instance).    One such convergence is the Pink Marble found in Knox County and Hawkins County in East Tennessee.  This beautiful stone  has been  used in many historic structures throughout the USA including the US Capital Building and the Tennessee Supreme Court Building.  In this Podcast Dr. Susan Knowles of Middle Tennessee State University, Center for Historic Preservation, talks with Mark about her study of the Marble Industry in Tennessee and her current exhibit at the Museum of East Tennessee.
