A window into ancient history

Monday, September 25, 2017

Archeology gives us a fascinating window into the past. Through ancient artifacts, we can begin to understand how people lived thousands of years ago.

Important findings made at Hell Gap in eastern Wyoming have changed our understanding of Paleoindians, the earliest people in North American. Remnants of this culture as many as 13,000 years old have been unearthed at the archeological site, including bison bones, stone tools, beads, needles and teepee rings.

Hell Gap offers an unparalleled education for students through a University of Wyoming field camp.

It was recently named a National Historic Landmark, which opens up important funding opportunities for continued research.
