Sitterud Bundle
This "Bundle" was found stashed in an overhang on the San Rafael Swell in Emery County.  It represents the kind of portable tool kit carried by Fremont hunter-gatherers.  It contains food in the form of Squaw Bush (Rhus Trilobata) Berries, finished tools such as snares and knives, and tools to make tools, such as antler batons and stone flakes.  The bundle is radiocarbon dated to 1250-1450 A.D. which was a transition period between the Fremont and later Ute and Paiute people.  The bundle was found in 1968 by Lavar Sitterud.
