Gilmore has been researching the Franktown Cave collection since 2000, and wrote a successful National Science Foundation grant proposal for “Preliminary Analysis of Perishable Artifacts and Ecofacts from Franktown Cave, Colorado” (Co-Principal Investigator Dr. Sarah Nelson). Based in part on the results of that research, he wrote “These Boots Were Made for Walking: Moccasin Production, Gender and the Late Prehistoric Hideworking Sequence on the High Plains of Colorado,” a chapter in the book Gender and Hide Production (2005), edited by Lisa Frink and Kathryn Weedman (AltaMira Press, Walnut Creek, California), and a successful Colorado State Historical Fund grant proposal to fund the production of a National Register of Historic Places Nomination Form for Franktown Cave, which was listed in the NRHP in 2006. His research on the Franktown Cave collection is ongoing, and analysis of the collections continues to provide valuable information about the prehistoric occupants of Colorado.
