About the Lab

The lab is a consortium of researchers, scientists, educators, volunteers, and the public with an interest on Rocky Mountain prehistory and archaeology of the last geologic epoch or the late quaternary. We probe the changes, adaptations, and evolutionary processes of prehistoric Americans from first people that occupied the continents in the Late Pleistocene through the Holocene. Our research thus is global, concerned with the origin of the First Americans as well as subsequent populations.

 We provide opportunities for students and the public to participate in the research process in both the lab and the field settings. We work cooperatively with archaeological societies and avocational archaeologists throughout North America and appreciate the support we receive from avocationals and the interested public.
