Students excavate at 12,000 year old Eagle Rock Shelter, Colorado


Working in layers between 6,000 and 12,000 B.C., nine Lee University archaeology students participated in two summer field schools excavating at the Eagle Rock Shelter on the Gunnison River near Delta, Co. 

Under a contract with the Bureau of Land Management and under direction of professional archaeologist and Lee alumnus, Dr. Dudley Gardner, Eagle Rock Shelter is the oldest continually inhabited shelter in North America. The work at the site is now into its ninth year, while Lee has been involved for the past six years.
