Why We Dig – Paleontology and Archaeology in Wyoming’s Big Horn Basin

Scientists and researchers from around the world consider the Big Horn Basin a researcher’s “paradise.” Many say this area in northern Wyoming is among the best places on the planet to see and study the history of Earth’s geology—nearly uninterrupted.

ECOS produced this three-screen video to reveal insights into the passion and purpose of key scientists working in the Basin, and why they return to this rugged landscape year after year.
