DM “From Clovis to Cowboy: Five Years of Archaeological Reconnaissance Between 10,000 and 13,800ft in the Wind River Mountains, Wyoming” By Todd Guenther January 23 7pm
The Dubois Museum will host Todd Guenther from Central Wyoming College for this Wyoming Community Bank Speaker Series on January 23rd at 7pm.
The iconic “Clovis to Cowboy” Wyoming Archaeology Month poster (1990) celebrated the long continuum of Wyoming’s cultural heritage during an era when common wisdom held that prehistoric people avoided alpine regions. Recent research has documented considerable human presence at high elevations throughout the Rockies. Researchers include 35 Central Wyoming College archaeology students who, during five seasons, have collectively surveyed over 2,600 miles in the rugged Fitzpatrick Wilderness, including two ~25 mile transects originating in the Wind River Basin and culminating on the summit of Gannett Peak. Cultural resources were observed all along the routes and adjacent areas, documenting high alpine human activity from Clovis to cowboy sites. Prehistoric campsites exist up to the Dinwoody Glacier’s Little Ice Age moraine; lodge pad village sites were recorded at 11,700ft; Paleo, pre-, proto- and historic periods are represented by diagnostics as high as 12,500ft. Surprising evidence of large-scale communal subsistence and ceremonial activities also exists in the forms of a bison jump complex at 11,000ft and a heavily used pilgrimage trail from the petroglyph complex at Dinwoody Lakes up to the Dinwoody Glacier. In August 2019, CWC archaeologists identified the ceiling of Wyoming’s prehistoric human activity at 13,470ft.
