Archaeologists Digging on Alamo Plaza

They’re digging in to history on Alamo Plaza.

Archaeologists have begun a study aimed at locating the Alamo’s original south and west walls.

“They really need to know where those walls were when this was a mission–and subsequently through the battle period” researcher Nesta Anderson said Wednesday as the work got underway.

She also said they’ll be on the lookout for a wide variety of artifacts that might be found.

“That may include remnants of household things like broken dishes, broken glass. It may include Native American artifacts because certainly before Europeans arrived, Native Americans were living along the River” Anderson said.

The results of the dig will be incorporated in to developing a new master plan for the Alamo Complex.
