The Gault Site in central Texas is regarded as one of the premier archaeological sites for helping us to understand the arrival of native peoples in the Americas. Continuously occupied by humans for 14,000 years, the site has yielded over 2.6 million archaeologically excavated artifacts in the last decade (mostly stone tools). But, looting and vandalism are threatening the site.
