MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS AND AMS RADIOCARBON AGE DETERMINATION OF A FEATURE FILL SAMPLE FROM SITE 48CO1409, LOCALITY 7581-1, CONVERSE COUNTY, WYOMING (2015)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Peter Kováčik.

Site 48CO1409, Converse County, Wyoming, contains six stone circles/tipi rings with limited chipped-stone artifacts and a small dart point.
