Wet Week Slows Alamo Plaza Dig

They’re hoping for a little more cooperation from Mother Nature in the next week.

That’s the word from researchers taking part in the archaeological dig in Alamo Plaza–after what as a wt last several days in San Antonio.

“Unfortunately because of the rain, we’ve been delayed, and it’s been very rough in trying to cover units up whenever it starts to rain” said UTSA’s Jose Zapata, adding “We hope to pick up speed Monday was things dry out.”

The researchers are searching fro the Alamo’s original west and south walls. They’ve already unearthed a number of different artifacts from a number of different eras.

“Primarily ceramics–19th century ceramics. Some material dating to the early 20th century as well” Zapata said.

Researches have also uncovered a number of adobe bricks–which may have been a part of the original west wall. The work will be used in formulating a new master plan for the Alamo Complex.
