The site is especially significant because it is the first dated occurrence of Oxbow components in Montana. Furthermore, the occupations span the millenia of notable climatic change from late Altithermal to Medithermal conditions. Informative paleoenvironmental data enhance the archeological results. Sun River provides an important key toward the understanding of prehistoric adaptations on the Northwestern Plains during a poorly understood period.
