Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) – Southwest TX Archaeological Society (SWTAS) will participate in National Archaeology Day on October 20, 2012, held at Mission Concepcion, San Antonio, TX. SWTAS will join the National Park Service and other regional archaeological organizations to hold an artifact identification workshop for the general public. SWTAS will provide information about the AIA Site Preservation Program and the US and international laws governing collection of artifacts and illegal trafficking of them. The aim of the SWTAS is to try to dispel the many myths about collecting, excavating, looting, and museum ownership of artifacts. Much harm has been done to cultural property due to ignorance of such laws and the idea of financial gain through inappropriate excavation and sale of artifacts.   Read more »
