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.
Volunteers are needed to monitor the translations of the International Archaeology Day webpage.
After two years of great success, National Archaeology Day will change to International Archaeology Day for 2013.
The Friends of the Office of State Archaeology in Connecticut acted as a participating partner in National Archaeology Day by sponsoring an Archaeology Fair.
