Texas Archeological Society to Celebrate National Archaeology Day
August 14, 2012
The Texas Archeological Society (TAS) will co-collaborate with the Bell County Museum in Belton, Texas for their National Archaeology Day festivities this October. In addition, TAS will host their Annual Meeting October 26-28 at the University of Texas at Tyler. The meeting will feature paper presentations, discussions, poster sessions, and artifact identification. Featured speakers will be Dr. Kent Reilly who will speak on cosmology and symbolism of southeastern Indian groups Friday night and Dr. Tim Pauketat who will speak on Cahokia and the Mississippian period at the banquet Saturday night. TAS members and the public are invited to attend.
We are so excited to be celebrating International Archaeology Day again this year on October 18, 2014 to raise awareness for archaeology and provide opportunities for the public to participate in archaeological activities.
In preparation for IAD 2014, we just set up a new webpage with precomposed e-mail invitations that you can easily send to your contacts.
Project Archaeology at the Beaverhead Museum hosted a teacher/student Archaeology Day for the region.
