    Archaeology of the Spring Mountains

    Forest Service District Archaeologist, Marty McMahon

    Let’s talk about some of the historic sites on the Spring Mountains! More popularly known as Mt. Charleston – we are officially part of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and our unit is called the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area (SMNRA). We have mining sites that go back to the 1800s from Potosi in the south to Stirling in the north, we have the remains of old saw mills that ran into the 1950s. Of course, some of our more famous sites are the Tecopa Charcoal Kilns and the Civilian Conservation Corps buildings in Kyle Canyon and the Works Progress Administration organization camp (run by Clark County) that is still in use in Lee Canyon.

    Where Does All the Fieldwork Go?

    Join the Museum Curator, Jessica Bitter, of Lake Mead National Recreation Area as she details the lifecycle of documents and artifacts generated in the field. Where do the notebooks, forms, and occasionally collected artifacts from archeologists end up? How are they cared for? Who can access them and how? Jessica will give a behind the scenes tour of the curatorial process, and how the work done if the field is curated so that it can be researched and accessed for generations to come.
