NORTHWESTERN WYOMING'S HERITAGE
IS IN DANGER

    The archaeology of the Greybull River drainage provides exceptional glimpses into the lives of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem's earlier peoples.  Unfortunately, many of these unique relics are being destroyed on an almost daily basis.   As the GRSLE project continues to work in the area, we are saddened to find that many of the pieces of our region's heritage we've recorded are being stolen, or sites are being seriously damaged -- sometimes by natural processes, but all too often through  active, intentional vandalism.  Activities such as encouraging theft of artifacts (taking place below) are not only illegal, this sort of vandalism,  is one of the most serious threats to our region's heritage and indicates an attitude of self-centered, destructive entitlement.  

 

  You can help preserve our archaeological heritage by reporting instances of theft and destruction of artifacts or sites.  All archaeological materials on federal land are legally protected, but that protection requires a general awareness that theft of artifacts is not OK.   Please help stop the destruction.

Let more people know about the threat to our heritage.  Download and display or distribute artifact "wanted posters:"
