Title: Future Considerations for Archaeology at Altitude
Lead Author: Adams, Rich
Abstract: The Wind River Range spanning 100 miles of northwestern Wyoming has emerged as a current hot spot for high altitude and Late Prehistoric/Protohistoric archaeology in the past several years. Of great interest are ten villages at the alpine/sub-alpine ecotone found in the Wind River Range. Chronologically 6000 years of prehistory is represented at or around these village sites. The climax species at this ecotone is whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) which is being threatened throughout its range in western North America by pine bark beetles and blister rust. The result of the whitebark pine die-off is that treeline is lowering and the context for interpreting the alpine villages is disappearing. Alpine archaeology is an emerging niche in a long established field. A field that is danger of disappearing as the whitebark pine forests disappear.
