Archeology of Mummy Cave Wyoming: An Introduction To Shoshonean Prehistory

Author(s): Wilfred M. Husted; Robert Edgar

Year: 1967


Few archeological sites provide a look into a broad section of the past, exposing in one awesome stroke, the splendor, the magnificence, and the mystery of cultural successes and failures over long periods of time. Typically only a few enticing bits and pieces are all that remain, often incomplete, and almost always disappointingly deficient when one considers what might have been preserved. Occasionally, however, the archeologist is provided with a view that exceeds our imagination and dreams. Mummy Cave is one of those rare and wonderful sites — lovingly appreciated, but much of it unknown and hidden from our full view for nearly 40 years. This volume brings to life a wonderful picture of the material culture and history of mountain dwellers during the past 9,000 years.
