Archaeological investigation at Spavinaw Creek

We assist government agencies and commercial clients achieve compliance with historic preservation laws through resource investigations. These projects are required by US and Canadian Federal law to protect cultural resources when they are endangered by road construction or other development.

"[The company's] record of delivery in resource investigations ideally suited them to this important assignment. The dig was performed safely, efficiently, and on time. Communication with the crew was excellent, and overall they did a very professional job."
Billy Cornell, County Commissioner, Oklahoma US

When a highway needed realignment as a result of an unsafe bridge, Delaware County of Oklahoma, and Rose and McCrary P.C., contracted our archaeological crews to excavate the Spavinaw Creek site, where remains were uncovered of a 4,000 year old Native American occupation.

Due to our intensive archaeological excavations, the bridge construction and road realignment were mitigated. Our archaeologists began a detailed analysis of the artifacts to answer several questions on the site to offer insight into the long and intriguing history of Spavinaw Creek and the people who lived in North-eastern Oklahoma a thousand years ago.
