Was listening to a YouTube video picked randomly last night to go to sleep to. Ancient archeology. Instantly knocked out. Woke up and accidentally hit repeat. I was stunned to hear the news that on Broadway extension between NW 122 and Edmond, a 200,000 year old mosaic floor was found. Yup. You read that right. Followed by the finding of a 200,000 year old hammer. Can be seen in video.
Thoughts?

Gets better. Like the iron cup found inside 300,000,000 year old piece of coal. Also from Oklahoman. Video at bottom of link.

Wild! If it was man made, surely we would have heard about additional floors or artifacts being discovered surrounding it in the 50+ years since.

According to the story they only had 20 days to examine it as a “food holding warehouse “ was built atop the area.
If it was a 6,000 sf area, one would think that there would be additional dwellings or amenities around it. You wouldn't think that someone constructed this mosaic floor in the middle of a field with nothing else around it. The area around Broadway Extension and 122nd is pretty well developed, so it's hard to believe that no one has run across similar formations or artifacts.

I was thinking about this. There would be a settlement at least somewhere. But this was 3 meters down. How far down do most home constructions go? Then there’s the highway itself. Lastly, there’s a lot of warehouses there now. Do any of those go down that far anymore?
