Archaeology in Action at the Gault Site
November 29, 2012
On National Archaeology Day,The Texas Archeology Society and the Bell County Museum collaborated on a tour of the Gault site, where 60% of the known Clovis artifacts (along with other artifacts predating Clovis) have been discovered. Approximately 30 people attended the tour led by Dr. Michael Collins, a research professor at Texas State University. Every Saturday afternoon during October mock excavations were conducted in two archeology pits – one with historical artifacts the other with prehistorical artifacts.
As preparations for International Archaeology Day pick up speed, more groups sign on daily. Today, four new groups joined the cause.
The Society for California Archaeology has signed on as a collaborating organization for International Archaeology Day.
2013's International Archaeology Day sees the return of many collaborating organizations from years past!
