Anya Kitterman (seated), Hill AFB’s archaeologist and Cultural Resources Program manager, meets with visitors Nov. 4 at the Natural History Museum of Utah’s Annual Behind the Scenes Event. Hill AFB archaeological collections and ongoing cultural resource protection were featured at this year’s event that attracted more than 2,200 visitors. The annual Behind the Scenes Event allows the public a unique look at the inner workings of the museum and features objects and collections not normally on display, including recent items found at the 12,300 year old Wishbone Hearth Site on the Utah Test and Training Range. The Natural History Museum of Utah is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m., 363 days per year, except on Wednesdays when the facility is open 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Information about programs and admission fees is available at www.nhmu.utah.edu.
