    18 - The Mineral Make-up of Indigenous Pottery with Chloe Geddes

    When you look at pottery, have you thought much about the clay used to make it? The indigenous Shoshone people of the Greater Yellowstone area sure did! The different clays used in their wares consist of minerals that can be traced back to rock types in the region and where those pieces were found tells us how far the people travelled within a region. Geo-archeological searcher Chloe Geddes tells us of her findings and explains how geology overlaps with archeology in many interesting ways.
