Doug gives a tour of the Buried City site. Scott looks at a collection of artifacts from a long-time local collector.  

Monday evening Steve Parker, Beaver County, demonstrates the fine art of rope-making.  We're hoping the ropes Steve and the school made will stabilize shade shelters from some brisk Panhandle winds.

Tuesday evening Bobby Nickey, Guymon, gave a flint knapping demonstration.

Wednesday evening was a free night for the students.  Kimmie Karber of Balko brought his collection of material from the Odessa Yates site for students to view.

Harold Katchel invited the Odessa Yates field school and the Board of Directors of the Oklahoma Anthropological Society for a barbecue on Friday evening. 

Saturday morning, Aug. 5,  the field school took a field trip to the Roy Smith site.
