Description

These special guided tours are offered at Oklahoma's only prehistoric Native American archaeological site open to the public. Each tour will be one mile of easy walking and about two hours in duration. Archaeologist Dennis Peterson will tell about the mounds, the people who created them between A.D. 900-1450, how the people became a very important leadership group, the excavations that took place here and why some of the 12 mounds line up to solstice and equinox sunsets.
