Recent Archaeological Research in Yellowstone National Park


With about half the world's active geysers in one of the largest, nearly intact temperate-zone ecosystems on Earth, Yellowstone National Park has a rich human history that spans more than 11,000 years. Over 1,800 archaeological sites help tell the stories of people and their connections to the park, as their home, hunting grounds, gathering places, transportation routes, and for recreation, from Paleo-Indian Clovis Culture through the 20th century. Dr. Horton will explore the many dimensions of archaeological research and discuss recent findings at the world’s first national park, established in 1872. She will highlight some of the important ties between Yellowstone and the Pacific Northwest, giving special focus to links with Vancouver Barracks.

Beth Horton (Ph.D., Washington State University) joined the staff at Yellowstone National Park in July 2016 as the Park Archaeologist. She came to this position after serving as an Archaeologist for Fort Vancouver National Historic Site for the previous six years, where she also assisted other national parks throughout the Pacific West region. Since 1996 she has worked as a professional archaeologist in cultural resources management for State and Federal agencies and as an instructor for Washington State University at Pullman and Vancouver, Washington. She has undertaken research and fieldwork in California, Idaho, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Montana, New York, Oregon, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming, as well as the United Kingdom and Italy. Her major research interests include spatial/landscape archaeology, western military archaeology, public archaeology, dietary analyses, gender studies, semiotics, and material culture studies. Throughout her work, she emphasizes the importance of involving the public in resource stewardship.
