Teton Archaeological Project: Preliminary Report of the 2014 Field Season


Following nearly a decade of high-elevation research in the Wind River Range of Wyoming, the Teton Archaeological Project seeks to record and interpret prehistoric alpine occupations of the Teton Range. The 2014 field season was multi-focused with three primary goals of; exploring previously unsurveyed areas for archaeological sites, investigating ice-patches for thawing artifacts, and testing the survivability of lipid biomarkers on high-elevation surface artifacts. The work performed in this inaugural season will set the stage for future alpine surveys, excavations, and paleoenvironmental studies in the Teton Range.
