Archaeologist spends his summer digging through Oklahoma
It’s been said there’s nothing new under the sun, which suits Phil Smith just fine.

Digging through centuries-old sediment is part and parcel for Smith, a seasoned archaeologist who continues his search to unearth the mysteries of the past.

Smith, 68, recently returned home to Claremore, dusting the layers of history off his shoes to wait for his next chance to explore what lies beneath.

His adventures took place through the Oklahoma Anthropological Society.
