These two circular stone alignments were partially exposed by riverbank erosion at the Chicken Creek site within the Lake Meredith National Recreation Area. Archeologists from the Bureau of Reclamation completely exposed the patterns, which are thought to represent the wall foundations of small structures, perhaps seasonal field houses. The National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 has given archeologists the opportunity to carry out research at many small, unimposing Antelope Creek sites that earlier archeologists overlooked.
