1000 Year Old Artifacts Found In Jetmore Dig

(AP) - Artifacts dating back 1,000 years were

uncovered in western Kansas during an archaeological dig that was

required before work on a dam could begin.

The director of the Center for Archaeological Research at

Missouri State University discussed the results of the April 2008

dig over the weekend in Jetmore, which is near the dig site.

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


The dam being built in Hodgeman County will include a

440-surface-acre lake at the Buckner Creek site.
