MSU Wonderlust Community Event: Montana's Earliest Hunters
- Thursday, January 24, 2019 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm
- Livingston Park County Public Library, 228 W. Callendar, Livingston, MT
This MSU Wonderlust lecture, which is free and open to the public, features archaeologist Dr. Larry Lahren focusing on the stories and twists surrounding the discovery of Clovis type artifacts and human remains near Wilsall, Montana. The term "Clovis" is used by archaeologists to define one of the late Ice-Age hunter-gatherer groups. In 1961, while hunting 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 in the same area, two men found the partial remains of a 1- to 2- year old male child along with with 115 red ochre-covered stones and artifacts of the Clovis type. The lecture is at 6pm at the Livingston Park County Library, 228 West Callendar Street.
