Future I-25 exit yields hunter-gatherer trove (Denver)





The site of a new Interstate 25 exchange south of Denver turns out to have also been a campsite for Native Americans more than 1,000 years ago.

Archaeologists are finding thousands of stone tools and artifacts - some dating back 1,050 years - at the RidgeGate interchange, a mile south of Lincoln Avenue.

A nomadic group of hunter-gatherers repeatedly used the campsite to grind plants, fashion tools and roast game over thousands of years, archeologists say.
