Ice Bison and Prehistoric Trout Fishing: A free archaeology presentation Thursday

(Jackson, Wyo.) - This Thursday, Archaeologists Matt Stirn and Rebecca Sgouros will give their annual archaeology update at the Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum (JHHSM). Hear JHHSM archaeologists talk about last summer's research in the Tetons. This year's theme was Environment and Diet. Hear the results of the ancient diet study (hint: the first scientific evidence of prehistoric trout fishing in the High Tetons), the discovery of preserved bison remains in an alpine glacier-- with the potential to illuminate ancient migration patterns, and the extraction of a high-altitude pollen core which will be used to recreate the climate of the Tetons over the past 17,000 years.
