The public is invited to the Campbell County Rockpile Museum in Gillette Saturday, November 13th for the 15th Annual Native American Artifact Show. Free to all, Museum Registrar Robert Henning explains the history of the show.
Patrons will enjoy viewing prehistoric stone projectile points, drills, scrapers and knives, among other items.
In conjunction with the show, professional archaeologist Bill Current, who has been working in Wyoming since 1985, will discuss the archeology of the Pinedale Anticline in Western Wyoming. Current has recently stated that the Anticline is significant for the number of dwelling sites uncovered there in clustered locations. He will discuss the physical remains found and the theories behind the ancient groups of people who utilized these dwellings.
If attending the show on Saturday is not possible, Henning describes an exhibit that will be up at least through December, called Rock Art in Wyoming.
The 15th Annual Native American Artifact Show on November 13th at the Rockpile Museum in Gillette runs from 10 am to 3 pm. For more information, call (307) 682-5723 or visit http://www.rockpilemuseum.com
