Alamo Dig Shifts to Search for South Wall

The search for the Alamo’s original south wall begins.

Researchers in Downtown San Antonio are making the shift, confident they have found portions of the Alamo’s original west wall.

“What we have seen is really encouraging. We’ve got deposits here–which we weren’t really sure” researcher Nesta Anderson said, pointing to the recovery of a number of artifacts–including bits of glass, pottery, and a number of adobe bricks.

“We’re going to take all of that data. We’re going to continue artifact analysis” Anderson said.

As for the shift to the search for the south wall, Anderson was encouraged.

“The gate was there. That is where people entered the compound, so we’re looking at working at the entrance way” Anderson said.

Ultimately, the findings from the archaeological research taking place will be used in crafting a new master plan for the Alamo Complex.
