Archaeologists Just Discovered Ancient Villages On This Wyoming Mountain Range And It’s Truly Amazing

Wyoming has a rich history that dates back further than the frontier days of the wild west. In fact, archaeologists just made a fascinating discovery in one mountain range from more than 2,000 years ago.

While researching high-altitude prehistoric settlements, University of Sheffield’s Matthew Stirn and his crew discovered 13 ancient villages. The closer they look, the more they’re finding out about the lives and migration habits of ancestors of modern Native American tribes such as the Shoshone, Ute, Comanche, and Northern Paiute. The researchers say that what they’ve found in the Wind River Range is already changing perceptions about humans and how they lived in the ancient West.
