Artifacts Found in Western Kansas

Published on May 17th, 2009 | by Admin


Artifacts dating back 1,000 years were uncovered in western Kansas during an archaeological dig.

Neal Lopinot said artifacts suggest the Buckner Creek area initially functioned as an overnight camp and later as a base camp or small hamlet.

Items uncovered in the dig included arrow points, hide-scraping tools and the remains of a small pit-like home.

Lopinot said the occupants lived primarily on bison and deer meat.
