Montana’s Earliest Hunters
January 5 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The term "Clovis," derived from a site finding near Clovis, NM, is used by archaeologists to define one of the New World's late Ice-Age hunter-gatherer groups. In 1961, while hunting marmots along Flathead Creek near Wilsall, Bill Roy Bray found a stone tool known as a biface and some small infant bones covered with red ocher. In 1968, while removing talus from the same area, two men found the partial remains of a 1- to 2- year old male child associated with 115 red ochre-covered stone and faunal artifacts of the Clovis type. Stories surrounding these discoveries-and the twists that followed-are the focus of archaeologist Larry Lahren's presentation.
