Researchers Confident in Search for Alamo’s South Wall

Researchers on the hunt for signs of the Alamo’s original south wall said they are making progress–even if they aren’t finding as many artifacts as were seen in the dig for the west wall.

“We are trying to chase out a feature we have been encountering” archaeologist Kristi Miller Nichols said Friday, adding “We’re not exactly sure what the feature might look like–but, it’s an architectural feature with some stones.”

She also said workers are taking their time in the search for history.

“We’re taking it very slow so that we don’t disturb any of the features that we’re encountering at this point” she said.

Miller Nichols said they’ve dug about three feet deep in spots at this point–and the work is likely to continue for several more days.

“We hope to continue in to next week–and, we’ll see after that whether or not the week after will be necessary to complete the investigations in this area” Miller Nichols said.

The results of the research project are expected to be incorporated in tot he crafting of a new master plan for the Alamo Complex.
