The founder of the city of Colorado Springs, and his trash, are at the center of a new exhibit at the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum. General William Jackson Palmer's trash, which was discovered last year, offers insight into his life and the time when he lived. Anna Cordova is Colorado Springs' lead archaeologist on the project.
