Archaeologists in the state are hoping to start excavating a bison kill site near Ree Heights later this summer.

It's one of the archeology dig sites in South Dakota scientists are probing this summer. 

Three years ago, a rancher noticed bison bones sticking out of a hillside near Ree Heights. Now a team of archaeologists are set to begin excavating the site.

Michael Fosha is the assistant state archaeologist for the State Historical Society.
