Abstract

This report contains the results of the archaeological investigations performed at the Airport Rings Site in the Montana portion of Yellowstone National Park. During the 2007-2008 Montana Yellowstone Archaeology Project (MYAP) Field school, University of Montana Students excavated three stone circles or tipi rings. The crew uncovered three hearths and collected several hundred lithic artifacts, including stone tools, and faunal remains. The Airport Rings Site was the first stone circle site to be excavated inside Yellowstone National Park.
