“fascinating ancient history!”

Explore an Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) village that was likely occupied from A.D. 1050 to 1200, and one of the largest communities west of the Colorado River. Outside the museum, tour a life-sized, six-room replica of an ancient dwelling and view a portion of the original site. Inside, view artifacts excavated from this site and learn the lifeways of these people. The Coombs Site is unique in comparison to many other Ancestral Puebloan sites in the southwest. It is located near what is considered to be the border of the Ancestral Puebloan and Fremont cultures. The Fremont were a prehistoric group that occupied most of Utah during the same period as the Ancestral Puebloans. The result is a blending of traits or a prehistoric "melting pot" that is reflected in the artifacts recovered from this site, as well as in the architecture. In addition, elements from other branches of the Ancestral Puebloan have been identified here, suggesting the presence of an extensive trade network.

Pretty cool place to check out if you've got some time in Boulder, Utah. The museum has a lot of interesting artifacts, but the best part about the park is out back, where you can see the ongoing archaeological dig.

The ancient history of this region is fascinating as well. At this park, you can see the remains of an Anasazi village from 1050-1200 AD, explore a recreation of a dwelling, and see artifacts excavated from the site!
