Activities at this year's field school will focus on excavation, pedestrian survey, and artifact processing. Additional information about this year's field school can be found on the attached flyer or at the following URL: http://www.txarch.org/Activities/fschool/fs2015/.
The TAS Native American Scholarship Program is offering up to two representatives from each tribe financial assistance to attend the field school (no previous experience required!). Since 2003, the TAS Native American Program has provided over 90 scholarships to members from 17 Native American Tribes to attend the annual field school. These scholarships are sponsored by donations from members of the TAS and other local archeological societies, the Council of Texas Archeologists, archeological contracting firms, foundations, and others. The scholarship program increases the level of understanding among the many people who have called Texas home. The program allows our members to meet, talk with, and learn from the native peoples whose traditions and lifeways are tied to Texas archeological sites.
