During a time of much improvement and change at the Alamo, archeology is an essential process to document, preserve, and teach the site’s more than 300 years of history. Archaeological fieldwork at the Alamo has led to discoveries regarding construction techniques, original locations of historic structures, and clues related to daily life during the many eras of Alamo history.

  • Learn about ongoing archeological work at the Alamo.
  • Review the history of San Antonio and Texas through an archeological lens.
  • Engage with Alamo artifacts in an object-based learning environment.
  • Explore ways to incorporate archeology in the classroom.
