Departments:


I continue working with numerous colleagues on archaeological/paleoenvironmental research. A book on Calf Creek sites and materials is underway as is a book on snails as proxy records to past environment. I am studying a major cache of Texas flint found near Blanchard, Oklahoma, Finally, manuscripts are partially written on Alibates flint use in eastern Oklahoma, on mid-Wisconsinan deposits in western Oklahoma, on the occurrence of knappable quartzite in the Antlers Formation of southern Oklahoma, and on the early Holocene sites and artifacts in the Red River Basin of Oklahoma.
