Anyone want to excavate or survey in Texas?



The Southern Texas Archaeological Association (STAA) announces a summer field

school in Medina County, Texas, near the historic settlement of Quihi. The STAA

has an excellent opportunity to conduct test excavations, site survey and collection documentation in a region in which very little archaeological research has ever been

done. Dates for the field school are July 24-August 1, 2004. Applications for field

school are available on the STAA website ( or by contacting Skip

Kennedy at (Phone: 210-273-3426). All participants must be

current, 2004 paid members of the STAA.

Fieldwork will be focused at two prehistoric sites, 41ME132 and 41ME133. Both

sites have important data related to the chronology of prehistoric occupation in the

Quihi Creek drainage. Artifacts from one site go back to at least 10,000 years ago,

with recurring occupation continuing up to early Historic times. The STAA project

area also offers opportunities to survey and record new sites and to document some

local artifact collections. Thus, the field school can provide the participant with

experience in several aspects of archaeological research.

Located north of US Highway 90, between Hondo and Castroville, the Quihi locale

is easily accessible. Camping areas will be assigned at the field school headquarters,

located in a renovated historic home with necessary facilities. Participants may purchase

meals through a catering arrangement made by the STAA. Motels are available in

Hondo and Castroville, as are numerous restaurants and stores.

The field school will be directed by Dr. Thomas R. Hester. David Calame will oversee

the site survey program (830-665-9758). Skip Kennedy is providing logistical and operations oversight. Sue Turner will direct the laboratory work.

Details on registration fees, facilities, locational maps, etc., will be provided to registrants.
