Celebrate Texas Archeology Month with hands-on activities and demonstrations of native crafts and technologies, including mock archeological excavations, rock art replication, and spear-throwing using an atlatl.
Petei McHenry, historical archeologist, will be leading the mock dig learning station. Visitors will be able to experience the tools and techniques used by archeologists during a dig, and learn how to process artifacts and objects uncovered.
As part of the day’s schedule of events, Hispanic Heritage Month will be celebrated with a “Chautuaqua & Coffee” learning series featuring Dr. Felipe Hinojosa, assistant professor at Texas A&M University's Department of History, to discuss “The Legacy of the Farmworker Movement in Texas.” The Humanities Texas exhibition “In His Own Words: The Life and Work of Cesar Chavez” is featured in the visitor center.
