25 Years of Cooper: Folsom Bison Hunting and Beyond

October 16, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the discovery of the bison kill at the Cooper site in Harper County, Okla. The site is best known for the 10,000-year-old painted bison skull, which is the earliest painted object ever found in the Americas. 

In this public lecture, Leland Bement, the archaeologist who led the excavations at Cooper, describes the discovery itself and details what we have learned about Paleoindian bison hunting in the 25 years since it was found. 

This event is free. After the lecture, there will be a wine and cheese reception in the Pleistocene Plaza. Must be 21+ to attend the reception. 

For accommodations, please contact the Oklahoma Archaeological Survey at 405-325-7211.
