Celebrate Texas Archaeology Month with a mock excavation in the Alamo Gardens. Join Alamo Archaeologist, Dr. Tiffany Lindley, for a chance to learn about soil stratigraphy, how to excavate artifacts, use necessary tools, analyze soil, and more. This mock excavation will be above ground and will feature items similar to what has been found at the Alamo and other San Antonio Mission sites.

We have some Archaeology Activities including both a beginner and advanced version of a crossword puzzle and word search linked below along with an answer key!
