Signs of San Antonio’s Past Unearthed

The big dig in to history continues in Alamo Plaza.

In fact,researchers who are working to find the Alamo’s original south and west walls said they’ve already found some signs of San Antonio’s past.

“It’s not very romantic–I’m talking a really thin piece of window glass. That’s indicative of late 1800’s–19th century construction” said archaeologist Mary Jo Galindo, who also said there were some other discoveries–even as they just scratch the surface.

“Where they found the window pane glass–and, the fragments of hand blown bottles… that is still very much near the top” Galindo said.

Researchers are hoping to find the locations of the Alamo’s original south and west walls. The work will be used in helping to craft a new master plan for the Alamo Complex.
