In the panhandle of Oklahoma there are caves found with inscriptions supposedly made by celts travelling through the US. I'm just wondering if anyone knows specifically where they are and if they can post the exact coordinates, because I'd like to visit them sometime.

Pretty certain the location is on private property and the public is likely unwelcome.

Yeah, you're right. Still, it would be nice to have a better idea of where they're located.

I saw a show on the discovery channel, or I think it was that channel about Anubis Cave and from what I could see on that show it looks like it is near the Cimarron River in the very far NW part of the panhandle. I noticed that cave had a lot of graffiti in it so it makes me think it is either on public land or very close to a road. There is a small town called Kenton, it is them most western town in Oklahoma and is the only place in Oklahoma on Mountain Standard Time. They have a small store called Kenton Mercantile. The store is very interesting and is also kind of a museum. I bet someone there would know where this cave is. If it is on private property they may know who owns it.

This part of Oklahoma is very beautiful and you will think you are in New Mexico. Not too far from Kenton you can find dinosaur tracks that cross the Cimarron River. This area is very remote and a great place to get away from it all. This is one of my favorite places in Oklahoma.

Also on this show a very good inscription was found in the Arkansas River just up stream from Tulsa. I know where that rock field is. If the film crew was in the same place where the rock was found then I think it is 5.5 upstream from HY 97 Bridge in Sand Springs.

Being from Southwest Kansas and having traveled quite a bit in, around, and through the Oklahoma panhandle. I'd guess the Anubis Caves are southeast of Boise City, down along the North Canadian River in either Cimarron or Texas county. Not in the Black Mesa/Kenton area along the Cimarron River. It should be noted that the panhandle use to be called "No Mans Land" after Texas kicked it out and before it became part of Oklahoma. During that time it was a place for outlaws to hide out without fear of the law because it didn't belong to any state. So for me it would be hard to say if the carvings are 1500 year old Celtic drawings or maybe Native American drawing. There's a chance they could be drawing from early explorers, settlers, or even outlaws. Without a reputable person coming forward to do a study of the area there will always by a mystery surrounding the Anubis Caves. I too would love to know exactly where the caves are at. What a cool little nugget of history.

Just went to Google to see what it had listed about these caves. One listing is your post right here, Okie.

Sometimes typing a name into Google brings up a surprise. Years ago my brother told me to see if anything came up about me and it did. The results of a bridge tournament appeared in a few seconds. Google is proud of what it can find in only a few seconds. I think it would be better to allow more time to show results. Recently, just to be doing, I put in the name of a great grandson. Turns out he's had a speeding ticket and problems with getting it paid. Supposedly it was miscommunication, but I'm not sure about that. I wanted to tell him it could easily affect his job search, but I haven't said anything so far.

_redbird_, you better watch out. Okie1962 has been through hell with his accident and may not be interested in joking about his fame. (hehehe )
