With October being Texas Archaeology Awareness Month, we thought it would be a good time to take a look back at some of the most exciting discoveries at the Alamo recently. For the past 15 months, the Alamo has been making progress on archaeological investigations in the Long Barrack and Church, two of the oldest buildings in Texas. These investigations are meant to help determine the state these historic structures are in, and what needs to be done to preserve them for future generations.
In March, archaeological field work was completed in association with the installation of safety perimeter bollards around Alamo Plaza.
While conducting these investigations, the archaeology teams have come across several exciting artifacts and discoveries.
