Denver: An Archaeological History

Ever wonder what was here before it was Denver? Find out in the book Denver: An Archaeological History (University Press of Colorado, 2008), available from our library. The publisher describes the book as follows: “For at least 10,000 years, [what is now] Greater Denver has been a collection of diverse lifeways and survival strategies, a crossroads of interaction, and a locus of cultural coexistence. Setting the scene with detailed descriptions of the natural environment, summaries of prehistoric sites, and archaeologists’ knowledge of Denver’s early inhabitants, [the book] bring[s] the region’s history to life. From prehistory to the present, this is a compelling narrative of Denver’s cultural heritage.” Check out our web catalog for other materials on archaeology and Denver history.
