The Ghost of Cataract Canyon

October 30, 2013 | Prehistoric, Uncategorized | by Jamie Stott

This family vacation was going to go down in history as one of the best ones she’d ever had. Rachel loved being outside, it made her feel connected to nature and a part of something…bigger. Currently she was sitting next to her husband Tom, holding onto the thick webbed straps for dear life. Whoops of […]

Hi guys! Thanks for reading my posts every Friday. Means a lot to have such dedicated followers. So I have recently been toying with the idea of doing a series of short videos that are archaeologically themed. I have a suite of topics of my own that I plan on covering, but I need your […]

The Flute Player

May 17, 2013 | Artifact, Prehistoric | by Jamie Stott

Sedg held in his hands his most prized possession. Standing on the edge of a tall mesa he closed his eyes and held out his arms, offering up the flute to the powers that be. The wind was stronger out here on the point, and the feathers that were attached to the flute by thin […]

What Is This?

May 4, 2013 | Artifact, Prehistoric | by Jamie Stott

Okay. I’m deviating a bit from Short Story Friday. Mostly because well…..it’s Saturday, and because I wanted to do something a bit different. As many of you know I have been working in the field for the past week. We were in the Uintah Basin doing some survey for an oil and gas project. Aside from […]

The Great Hunt Panel

April 12, 2013 | Prehistoric | by Jamie Stott

Onah had been born deformed. The bones in his right leg were smaller than normal and didn’t develop the way they ought to have. Usually babies born with obvious deformities were sent back to Great Spirit within their first few hours of life. This was the way of The People. Luckily for Onah, his deformity […]

Temple of Apollo at Delphi, Greece

The Priestess of Delphi

March 29, 2013 | Prehistoric, Structure | by Jamie Stott

The low rumble of thunder echoed throughout the Phocis valley. Heavy gray clouds painted the sky, and the air was smelled of rain. A soft wind came down through the trees and sent a wash of chills up her arm. Eirene stood on the edge of the massive stone portico, arms hugged around her middle. […]

The Remote Granary

March 15, 2013 | Prehistoric, Structure | by Jamie Stott

This climb was going to kill me. With every step my thighs burned and my muscles screamed out in pain. My back was drenched in sweat beneath the weight of my pack, and I could feel the red heat rising up in my cheeks. But I kept hiking. Had it just been me on this […]

The First Hunt

March 8, 2013 | Artifact, Prehistoric | by Jamie Stott

A twig snapped, the sound loudly echoing across the dry landscape. Balu cursed himself for being so careless, quickly looking up to see if the noise had disturbed his prey. About 50 meters north beneath an Acacia tree, was a kangaroo. It hadn’t bolted from the noise, but its ears were stiff and alert, and […]

I’ve Been Here Before

May was touring colleges with her mother. She wasn’t entirely sure that she even wanted to go to college, but her mother was dead set on her going. Something about her being the first person in their family to go… Whenever her mother went on that rant, May politely tuned her out. She’d find something […]
