WHAT ARE THOSE?!: CAIRNS

WHAT ARE CAIRNS?! ⚒

Have you ever hiked a trail and seen a pile of rocks, built, on the ground? Do you think they were prehistoric or modern? ⚒


For archaeologists to identify a prehistoric structure: we rely on certain methods, previous research, as well as educational knowledge! ⚒


In this video, I explain we identified the prehistoric cairn due to the surrounding “pack rat midden”. There was a clear soil development from the deposits. ⚒


DYK: A midden may preserve the materials incorporated into it for up to 50,000 years! ⚒
