Overview

For at least 10000 years Native Americans inhabited the Medicine Lodge area and this site contains a history of pictographs and petroglyphs dating from the last couple hundred years to 2500 years ago. 

In 1968, the University of Wyoming began an eight-year archaeological study at Medicine Lodge. Teams of archaeologists excavated trenches along the cliff face. Evidence of ancient cultures unfolded as stone tools, projectile points, fire pits, bones, ceramics, and other artifacts were uncovered.
