Archaeologists recently uncovered ancient secrets in Wyoming after discovering some of the oldest Paleoindian artifacts in North America.

According to Cowboy State Daily, an archaeology team at the Powars II dig site, which is located near Sunrise, Wyoming, discovered artifacts that archaeologists claim are 14,000 years old. The outlet reported that the artifacts predate the Clovis man, which is believed to be one of the oldest prehistoric American cultures.

Cowboy State Daily previously reported that despite the destruction caused by local mining efforts, stone tools and other items have been discovered at the Sunrise excavation site. According to the outlet, the ancient discoveries at Sunrise have generated international attention and attracted researchers from places like Brazil.

Cowboy State Daily reported that as the current dig site approaches completion, researchers and archaeologists are already considering additional dig sites.

George Zeimans, who serves as the lead archaeologist at the Wyoming excavation, indicated that he has already tested a few different test sites and found evidence of other ancient artifacts in the region.

“We know there’s a main camp here somewhere,” Zeimans said. “It’s just figuring out where it is.”

Zeimens noted that technology such as ground penetrating radar is not able to be used at the Sunrise, Wyoming, excavation. He explained that the technology is not reliable due to the presence of multiple iron deposits, iron scraps, and other artifacts buried beneath the ground.

“You would get too many false readings,” Zeimens said. “It would take forever. So that just won’t work in this kind of situation.”

While the technological challenges will require archaeologists to do a lot of digging to determine the exact location of the main campsite, Zeimens said, “That’s all right. If we knew all this stuff and had all the information, we’re after, then archaeology would be really boring.”
