Nine Lee University archeology students participated in field schools this summer at the Eagle Rock Shelter in western Colorado.

Under the umbrella of the Bureau of Land Management, the Eagle Rock Shelter is the only continually inhabited shelter in North America. Lee University has been involved for the past six years, though work at the site is now entering its ninth year.

The university’s students were involved in the entire process, including digging the site, screening for materials and recording the artifacts.

The group also traveled to the Mesa Verde National Park and other area sites to learn more about the area’s geography and history.
