Melting Ice, Artifacts And Human Presence In The Wilderness On Thursday's Access Utah

The Rocky Mountain Anthropological Conference is happening today through Saturday in Logan and will cover such topics as Japanese Railroad Worker Archaeology in Central Utah and Historic Filming Locations of Utah. We’ll talk with archaeologists Ken Cannon, Craig Lee, and Larry Todd about melting ice patches and the race to document thawing artifacts; the long-term presence of humans in current wilderness areas and how that affects our understanding of wilderness;  how archaeology informs public policy decisions; and much more.
