Topic: Eagle Rock Shelter, located in the northern portion of the Gunnison Gorge National Conservation Area near Delta, is the oldest human occupation site in Colorado, dating as far back as 12,980 years ago.   The lowermost portions of the shelter records an almost continuous series of occupation events from the pre-paleoindian deposits well into the early Archaic periods making this the only known site in North America of this kind.  It has a full record of late Pleistocene/early Holocene human occupation.
