Ice Patch Archaeology
Increasing temperatures and changing patterns of precipitation are exposing traces of ancient human activity in the alpine regions of mountain states. Dr. Craig Lee from the University of Colorado at Boulder discovered some of these artifacts in the Beartooth Mountains on the Shoshone National Forest. The items are now stored in the Billings Curation Center.
