    Good to see you're still out there, walnuthead. Nye doesn't talk about the prehistoric sites much, but another book, by E. Buford Morgan, 'Wichita Mountains-Ancient Oasis of the Prairies' mentions the prehistory. Another good book to get if you can find it. If you ever get over to Tom Steed, go over to the parks' community shelter and look along the lake shore just west of it, as there was a village there at one time. When the lake is down, walk straight northwest of the northwest corner of that shelter, and you might spot a grinding basin. If nobody has taken it. I turned I upside down. Look at it but please leave it there. There were two, and the first was a little better and the park wanted it for the park office to display. Didn't tell em about the second one. I thought it was fine to leave it where it had been for hundreds of years. Enjoy exploring SW OK!

    This may be an "old post", but still going rock...lol.
    On a side note: I was a pre-teen swimming in Thunderbird Lake and found a quartz point..(among all the "Little Kings" beer caps). My Dad was doing a swimming pool job there with my uncle (putting in Barry Switzer's pool). Both of them said it was a fake because Indians didn't make quartz points. I believed them and eventually lost the point. I wish I had it back now being older. It was a fun summer around that red-stained lake...(I got to swim in Switzer's pool before he did...lol).

    Before they put Lake Thunderbird in lairmo, a surface survey was conducted by the Oklahoma Archaeological Survey where they recorded at least 38 prehistoric sites within the lake project area. Close to 10,000 artifacts were collected (no idea on how many were picked up by private collectors), so a wonder you didn't find more than just the quartz point!

    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!

    Most were not really cool things you'd care to look at much, lairmo; lots of flakes I imagine. Some are probably on display at different places, but as it usually goes most are probably in a box someplace far from public view.

    Thanks RGINN! I will look into getting that book. Hopefully, it won't take me three years this time, lol. I will remember to check out that site on Tom Steed and will let you know if that grinding basin is still there. I really appreciate your help! I will keep in touch about anything I find as a result of your information. Have a great holiday season and hopefully I will text you soon!

    That is nice! There is a source for the material in the area?
    I have several light colored Quartzite points that are a compressed sand stone. I can source the material used to an ancient quarry where there is rock art and all. Site was acquired by a conservancy for protection and further study.
