The purpose of this report is to describe the results of the 2014 archaeological study at the Hell Gap site in southeast Wyoming, a small incremental step of a far larger project that has been continuous since 1993. The Hell Gap project is a multi-faceted endeavor, and although primarily designed to investigate the Paleoindian prehistory of the Hell Gap Valley, secondary goals include: investigations of post-Paleoindian occupations of the valley, public participation in the making of prehistory, volunteerism in service of archaeology, and public education of underserved communities (those in the vicinity of Hell Gap or largely Goshen and Platte counties). Consequently, while the function of the report is mainly to describe the 2014 archaeological investigations supported by the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, some space is devoted to the other aspects of the overall project (Appendices 2 to 9).
