Summary

The Espy-Cornwell Site (48CR4001) is a bison kill/butchering site located

approximately 16 miles south of Rawlins in south-central Wyoming. Situated

directly under an east-facing sandstone cliff, this site is warm on even a cold

day. It overlooks a small valley containing spring-fed creeks and small

drainages, Macrofloral analysis was conducted on two firepits to examine any

record of plant utilization by the occupants. Bison kill/butchering sites are

rare in this area, so this site provides a unique opportunity to examine hunting

and gathering strategies.
