Bull Creek: A Paleoindian Camp in the Oklahoma Panhandle

Author(s): Kristen Carlson; Leland Bement; Brian Carter

Year: 2017


Bull Creek is one of a handful of Paleoindian camps, which has survived the taphonomic consequences of time. In this presentation we will discuss our current understanding of the site and it’s inhabitants. The topics discussed include environmental reconstruction and the broader use and reuse of the surrounding region by Paleoindian people. Snapshots of butchering techniques have been captured at Bull Creek as well as differential seasonal use of the site. After the third season of excavation Bull Creek is beginning to provide a picture of life in the Oklahoma panhandle as early as 10,300 years ago.
