The Extreme History Project “Local Diggings” Saturday, November 12, 2011.
We were very pleased with our first event at the beautiful Mission Ranch Lodge which featured archaeologist Scott Carpenter discussing a local obsidian cache site that had been recently discovered. Shane Doyle started the evening with some traditional Plains Tribal music and guests dined on local grain fed beef from the Mission Ranch and wine from the Gourmet Cellar in Livingston. Everyone enjoyed the evening and expressed their interest and support for our project. Thanks to everyone who made this event a great success!!
