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.
