The Archaeological Society of Oklahoma
We are the Oklahoma Chapter of the Central States Archaeological Society. Our chapter represents hunters, collectors, and amateur archaeologists who share an interest in the ancient history of Oklahoma.
Oklahoma is a major crossroads in North America; where the Plains meet the Woodlands, and rivers flow from the Rocky Mountains towards the Gulf of Mexico. Throughout prehistory many cultures have called Oklahoma home, and they left behind many unique relics.
About our Society's Seal
The seal for Oklahoma Chapter of the CSAS shows some of these rare artifacts. A variety of shell bead styles from the Spiro Mounds makeup the circle. The central bison skull with a painted lightning bolt zigzag is from the Cooper Site. The point at left is the finest Folsom found at Cooper. The point at right is a Tribute point from the Spiro Mounds. These are superimposed over a map of the state showing the major rivers that flow through the state.
