8 Archaeological Discoveries In Idaho That Will Make You Question Everything

While Idaho’s ruins and ancient artifacts are no match for the behemoth figures of the Eastern Hemisphere, our archaeological finds are impressive in their own regard. Tools, artwork, and fragmented remains gradually reveal our state’s primitive, ancient, and Native American histories, inciting curiosity with every new piece of the puzzle. While too vast and numerous to list below, many of these discoveries (and thousands more) are preserved at the Idaho Museum of Natural History for your in-person viewing and educational pleasure.

Incredible! Idaho’s history is just beneath the surface (and sometimes above it), but it’s always amazing when something is revealed that raises new possibilities and questions about our past.

How many of Idaho’s museums have you been to? Do you have a favorite exhibit or archaeological piece?
