Glen Canyon National Recreational Area contains many layers of history. Starting over 11,500 years ago, various groups including Native Americans, Mormons, Spanish friars, miners, and pioneers have moved through the canyon. Archeologists can use the materials these individuals left behind to learn more about their lives.
