State archeologist comes to Gillette

Campbell County residents can visit the Rockpile Museum and learn more about Wyoming State Archaeologist Spencer Pelton’s work at a site near Buffalo.

The talk begins at 7 p.m. Friday. The museum is located at 900 W. Second St.

Pelton has conducted archaeology solely in Wyoming for the last seven years and maintains excavations at several Paleoindian archaeological sites around the state.

Up to 30 people will be allowed to attend the talk. For more information, call 307-682-5273 or visit
