The Ozarks Chapter of the Missouri Archaeological Society will meet at the Center for Archaeological Research, 622 S. Kimbrough, Springfield. Jack Ray will present "Excavations at the Coffey Site in the Flint Hills of Northeast Kansas."
The Odyessy Research Program (University of Kansas) continued its investigations at the Coffey site in July 2012. The Coffey site is a multicomponent prehistoric site located in the northern Flint Hills of northeast Kansas. Excavations at Coffey in 2012 focused on Paleoindian and possible pre-Clovis-age deposits located on a late Pleistocene-age terrace (ca. 13,500 years old). The results of the 2012 Coffey site excavations will be discussed.
