Artifacts believed to be at least 2,000 years old

Colcord, Oklahoma (AP) 1-09

Archaeologists believe artifacts unearthed during a recent dig in northeastern Oklahoma date back between 2,000 and 8,000 years.

AMEC Earth and Environmental conducted the 20-day dig in Colcord that was funded largely by the Bureau of Indian Affairs because it is in the Cherokee Nation.

The 12 archaeologists found about 16,000 stone artifacts at the site of a new Delaware County bridge and plan to issue a preliminary report next month on their findings.

The artifacts will be taken to Jefferson City, Mo., to be washed and catalogued before they go on display at the Institute of the Great Plains in Lawton.
