Wold Bison Jump

 

 
 

Read All About It:

The site is a bison jump comprised of a large, intact bonebed and associated cairn drive lines. Four radiocarbon dates place the site’s use during the Late Prehistoric Period in Wyoming, potentially by the ancestors of the Crow. The site’s bonebed contains a thick deposit of bison bone, abundant charcoal, and numerous chipped stone artifacts. The associated drive lines contain a total of 67 stacked or single stone cairns. Previous investigations have established the presence of at least one jump event, but deeper, as yet unexcavated bone deposits may exist at the site.
