Ancient campsite discovered in South Dakota

Discovery of a campsite used by ancient hunters in South Dakota (USA) has delayed work on a stretch of an Expressway for at least a year. The site, along a creek bed between Buffalo Gap and Maverick Junction, was found last year during a routine cultural-resources survey that preceded construction of the Heartland Expressway. Archaeologists estimated the site at 9,000 to 12,000 years old.
     The stretch of the Heartland Expressway between Buffalo Gap and Maverick Junction east of Hot Springs had been scheduled for grading this year. But grading won't be done until officials determine how to handle the archaeological site to comply with National Environmental Policy Act requirements, according to Todd Seaman, regional engineer in the state Department of Transportation's Rapid City office.
