Magic Mountain Archeaology Site in Golden ColoradoTonight at the Golden Community Center, Dr. Michele Koons, curator of archaeology at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, will lead a talk about Magic Mountain’s pre-history and history based on the archaeological work conducted by DMNS.

Michele will detail some of her findings such as how the early settlers lived, what they lived in, and perhaps what they ate. If we are lucky, Dr. Koons will even bring some artifacts taken from the site for attendee viewing.
