A small prehistoric stone shelter which dates back 8,000 years has been found in Colorado.

Miller says the small stone shelter was likely built by a culture called the Foothills-Mountain people, which lived in North America 8,000 – 10,000 years ago.

“Between the geology and the artifacts, we have a good idea of the age of the deposits right now,” Miller said.

Crews had to dig about ten feet into the ground to uncover most of the artifacts they collected.
