UPDATE ON 2018 HCAA FIELD & LAB TRAINING COURSE

  • Mike McBride explaining lithic technology in the lab
  • Steve Stoutamire pointing to projectile exhibits and talking about point morphology
  • Mike McBride demonstrating flint knapping in the yard

The 2018 class has started off well. We have 15 students this year and had to turn away another three due to space limitations. By far the biggest class so far. Thus far Mike and Steve have taught two classes on lithics, basics of archeology and site types in Central Texas. They will then do field techniques, lab techniques, and finally mapping procedures, for a total of 5 classes.

Student Testimony

". . . This “class” (actually 5 separate sessions, 4-6 hours each) was very enlightening to me personally, and I would recommend it to anyone who has a passion to get involved with learning more about the archeology of our region, and the desire to help preserve it." Marvin Gohlke, Jr. (click for full testimony)
