An archaeological dig at Golden’s Magic Mountain Archaeological Site in June — the site’s first dig in more than 20 years — uncovered a trove of artifacts with the help of technology and the public.

On Sept. 6, Michele Koons, the curator of archaeology for Denver Museum of Nature & Science and dig leader, presented the initial findings during a seminar. New technology allowed the archaeological team to make educated guesses as to where potential artifacts might be.

“The technology was amazing. Everywhere we put an excavation team, we uncovered fire pits,” Koons said.
