A Nonprofit Research and Education Organization

PCRG is a member-supported 501[c][3] nonprofit organization that conducts scientific research, trains students, and educates the public on the archaeology of the Great Plains and Southern Rocky Mountains. PCRG projects use state-of-the-art field and lab methods to investigate human communities and their relationships to the natural environment, from North America’s earliest American Indian inhabitants to nineteenth-century traders and settlers. PCRG broadly disseminates its research findings to professional and public audiences, furthering a better understanding of Colorado’s past and fostering preservation of the state’s unmatched archaeological resources. Membership in PCRG is open to the public.
