SOUTHEASTERN UTAH -- A man from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources recently found a rare Native-American pot in Utah.

Sgt. Casey Mickelsen found the pot in an alcove while searching for illegal traps in the Manti-La Sal National Forest. He left it in place and contacted the U.S. Forest Service.

Archaeologists estimate the pot to be about 1,000 years old. They're glad Mickelsen didn't remove it himself because now they can study the surrounding area.
