RUIDOSO, N.M. (KRQE) – Archaeologists could soon be called in to take a closer look at an ancient shelter discovered in Ruidoso.

According to the Ruidoso News, the shelter was found on the eastern edge of the village by two men who were thinning the forest.

The men mapped the cave’s layout, took pictures and documented some artifacts inside. They told the paper it wasn’t much, but enough to recommend the cave be protected.

Until archaeologists properly study it, the cave’s age won’t be known. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
