Alamo Plaza Dig Winding Down

It looks as though the search for signs of the Alamo’s original south and west walls is winding down.

“It looks like we need to wrap it up this week” archaeologist Kristi Nichols said Tuesday Morning, adding Mother Nature has been helping to dictate the schedule in the days ahead–especially with more rain in the forecast.

“We’ve been using buckets and dust pans… and just strength to move the water around and get it out of our units… and get it out of the excavation area” Nichols said.

Meanwhile, the work has clearly focused to much more of an analysis phase.

“I had intentionally hoped to do a little more unit excavations–but, because of the weather, I think we’re going to have to stop that and just focus on documentation right now” Nichols said.
