Over 1,000 years ago the Fremont lived in the Uinta Basin where they farmed, foraged, made villages, and central to this talk: created some of the most incredible and intriguing rock imagery the world has ever seen. The rock imagery centers on depictions of human forms with gorgeous jewelry, intricate clothing and body paint, and holding implements of war and agricultural prosperity. Could these clues help us understand Fremont society? Public Archaeologist Elizabeth Hora is using data from nearly 500 of these human-esque figures to learn more about the Fremont – who they people were, how they organized amongst themselves, and what war and peace among the Fremont may have been like.
This online presentation is put on by the American Rock Art Research Association (ARARA) and registration will open on their website a month before the presentation.
