The Patagonian Bones

Welsh settlers arrived in southern Argentina in 1865, but not all of them survived. Recently discovered skeletal remains could be from a Welsh woman who died there that year. This documentary tells us how some human remains can close the circle of a fascinating story that connects two worlds.
