A 2,000-year-old bison kill site in Montana has been damaged during a coal mine expansion project.

“All of these remains are highly butchered bison remains that are beautifully preserved and extremely rare,” said Finley, who will be among the team headed to the site today to examine the extent of damage. “This site was full of information about the way people used to live 2,000 years ago.”

Finley said if the site had been properly preserved and carefully excavated, it likely would have qualified for designation under National Register of Historic Places or as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
