Behind the Scenes | Archaeology Adventure

Meet Jazzy and Gates, two adventure-loving SciGirls who just returned from four days of hardcore camping far away from running water, little siblings, computers and cell phones - all in the name of science!The girls teamed up with Dr. Renee Barlow, the Curator of Archaeology of the College of Eastern Utah’s Prehistoric Museum, to try and unearth some clues about the mysterious Fremont Indian culture that lived in Range Creek Canyon about 1,000 years ago. The Fremont people disappeared suddenly and now archaeologists are trying to determine how they lived and what happened to them. Jazzy and Gates went to great lengths to collect their data - they even had to rock climb to one hard-to-reach site!What’s that on the rock? It’s a bird, it’s a plane – nope! It’s ancient rock art from Range Creek Canyon in Utah!
