Over 1,000 years ago, the Fremont lived in the Uinta Basin; like those in the Four Corners area at the same time, these people farmed and gathered into large village sites unlike any the region had experienced before. But unlike in the Four Corners, who these people were and what their society was like is still murky. Recent research into these questions suggests that two linguistically distinct peoples made their way into the Uinta Basin and that the ways they coped with the fickle northern Utah climate may have colored their interactions with not only the natural world, but with each other. By examining the depictions of Fremont people on rock imagery, Public Archaeologist Elizabeth Hora is learning more about who these people were, how they organized amongst themselves, and what war and peace among the Fremont may have been like.
