Montana’s Native People: Perspectives on the Clovis Child Webinar Series Part 3
Yellowstone Gateway Museum invites tribal college and high school students and educators to join us Fall and Winter 2020 for a FREE eight-session live career webinar series. The webinars explore the work of anthropologists, archaeologists, geneticists and other professionals who have gained an understanding of the Anzick Site in Park County, Montana.
“Archaeology is the study of past humans and societies through the analysis of their material record, or “artifacts” left behind. The Anzick Site provides us with a glimpse into the lives of people living at the end of what is commonly known as The Ice Age, at approximately 13,000 calendar years before present. It is in part, due to the study of this site, that we may begin to further understand the lifeways of those who have lived on these lands since time immemorial.”
