It Happened in Oklahoma by Robert L. Dorman

1933

King Tut’s Tomb, Oklahoma Style

For years odd stories and superstitions had circulated in the backwoods about the grassy mounds that lay on the Craig property outside of Spiro. Horses shied up when they were in the vicinity, and strange blue flames could be seen there at night. Stranger still, an earlier owner claimed once to have witnessed a tiny wagon emerge from the largest mound, pulled by a team of cats. There was the general opinion that the mounds were haunted and not a good place to be after dark.

1933

King Tut’s Tomb, Oklahoma Style

For years odd stories and superstitions had circulated in the backwoods about the grassy mounds that lay on the Craig property outside of Spiro. Horses shied up when they were in the vicinity, and strange blue flames could be seen there at night. Stranger still, an earlier owner claimed once to have witnessed a tiny wagon emerge from the largest mound, pulled by a team of cats. There was the general opinion that the mounds were haunted and not a good place to be after dark.

Beyond the isolated farms along that stretch of the nearby Arkansas River, the mounds and their tales were little known. And no one, not even the neighbors, realized that the mounds comprised one of the most important archaeological sites in the United States. Obscurity had saved them—at least until 1935, when word of the treasures they contained began to spread around the world.

People had been finding relics in the area since anyone could remember. There had been a small amount of digging on the largest mound, known as Craig Mound, twenty years earlier, though little was uncovered. J. B. Thoburn of the University of Oklahoma excavated two minor mounds in the area between 1913 and 1917, but found few indications of the treasure trove nearby. Thoburn took the earliest known photograph of the Craig site, important for later researchers. He concluded correctly that the mounds were associated with the ancestors of contemporary Native Americans and were related to similar sites in Arkansas and elsewhere in the South.

After this brief period of interest, the mounds retreated into obscurity again until the summer of 1933, when a local man, R. W. Wall, convinced the owner of the property to sign a two-year lease (for $350) with a group of half a dozen men calling themselves the Pocola Mining Company. Although previous owners had been good stewards of the mounds, the current owner, a preacher named George Evans, may have found any offer hard to refuse in the depths of the Great Depression.

The Pocola group went to work and showed that their company was aptly named. Using the crudest and most destructive methods, the men sunk holes haphazardly into the mounds, throwing away shards of pottery, pieces of textiles, and other evidence that might have been invaluable to scientists. Engraved shell fragments were shoveled out and walked on like gravel. When the yields of artifacts were not satisfying enough, they then resorted to tunneling, hiring local coal miners for extra help. The largest of the tunnels, through Craig Mound, was big enough for a man with a wheelbarrow.

By now some of the wonders of the mounds were being revealed—finely carved maces and pipes, ornately engraved shells, beautiful masks, beads, and pearls, along with, of course, human remains. Near the center of the Craig Mound, which soon came to be known as the “Great Temple Mound,” the Pocola men claimed to have discovered an inner chamber, buttressed by cedar poles, enclosing a skeleton in ceremonial garb.
