Denver Museum of Nature and Science

Log Number: ST-251082-OMS-21

The Denver Museum of Nature and Science will inventory, process, and catalog the Jones-Miller Site, a Paleoindian Hell Gap period (ca. 10,500–11,500 years ago) bison kill site. The project team will preserve the Jones-Miller Collection in optimal storage conditions to mitigate physical risks and fully inventory its contents. The museum will establish intellectual control of the collection by re-establishing provenience contexts and through consultation with subject matter experts and tribal liaisons as needed. The review and editing of existing written materials will build a foundation for the publication of a new manuscript about this collection so that it can be accessed by researchers and its story shared with the public.
