Texas Archaelogical Month

The turnout was good for the Atascosa County Historical Commission meeting on Oct.10. The guest speaker was Al Gerdes from the "Friends of Casa Navarro" group. He spoke about the artifacts found out at the Navarro ranch site. He also provided each commission member with a booklet of pictures, documents and maps from the days when Jose Antonio Navarro lived on his ranch. Al's presentation was in celebration of Texas Archeology Month

Each October the Texas Historical Commission sponsors Texas Archeology Month in association with the Texas Archeological Society and the Council of Texas Archeologists. Throughout the state supporters have planned educational and entertaining activities to promote the importance of proper archeological practices and to understand the depth and richness of our heritage.
