Paleoindians and Rockshelters in the Middle Rocky Mountains

Author(s): George Frison; Marcel Kornfeld

Year: 2015


Since at least the 1980s the University of Wyoming has conducted Paleoindian and rockshelter studies on BLM administered properties from northern Colorado to southern Montana. The cooperative and assistance agreements have benefited both the agency and the University. An enormous amount of research effort contributed by the faculty and enhanced by volunteers and avaocationals, have produced results far beyond what could have been accomplished without the cooperation. The results include students training (many becoming federal archaeologists), student and faculty conference presentations, publications including MA and PhD thesis, and public education. We highlight some of our research results including excavations at Mill Iron, Upper Twin Mountain, Krmpotich, Two Moon Shelter, Last Canyon Cave, and others.
