Archaeology Lecture: Excavation of the Eagle Rock Shelter

  • Two Rascals Brewing Company 147 North 1st Street Montrose, CO, 81401 United States (map)

More than 8,000 years before the pyramids were built and about 11,000 years before the cliff houses went up at Mesa Verde, humans took up residence under a rock overhang along the Gunnison River in an area now designated as part of the Gunnison Gorge National Conservation Area.

The excavation of this site, known as the Eagle Rock Shelter, will be the focus of an upcoming CCA-sponsored public lecture by BLM Archaeologist Glade Hadden and you're invited!

Join us on Tuesday, March 7th at Two Rascals Brewing Company for this fun and interesting presentation!
