HAS March Meeting - Thursday, April 18, 2024, 6:00 p.m.

"Disturbed Archeological Sites: A Tool for Public Archeology Education." - Nicholas Bourgeois

Nicholas Bourgeois

Greetings HAS members! Our April monthly HAS meeting will take place on Thursday April 18, 2024, starting at 6:00 p.m. at the Trini Mendenhall Community Center. This meeting will be held in person and will also be available to members via ZOOM. Later, the lecture will be posted and available to the public via our YouTube channel.

We are pleased to welcome Nicholas Bourgeois, an archeologist with the Texas Historical Commission, who will present “Disturbed Archeological Sites: A Tool for Public Archeology Education.”

Nicholas grew up moving around the country, but his family eventually settled down in Baytown, Texas. After studying anthropology at Louisiana State University, Nicholas moved to California where he received a master's degree in World Cultures from the University of California, Merced. Nicholas spent several summers studying Maya cave archeology in Belize, and then returned home to Texas. He worked as a CRM archeologist before joining the Texas Historical Commission as the site archeologist for the Varner-Hogg Plantation State Historic Site, Levi Jordan Plantation State Historic Site, and Sabine Pass State Historic Site.

We hope you will all join us for this fascinating presentation. This meeting is free and open to the public. Be looking for your meeting reminder, which will also contain a Zoom link so that those HAS members who cannot join us in person will be able to tune in from afar. The Trini Mendenhall Community Center is located at 1414 Wirt Road in Houston. For more information about this program or about the Houston Archeological Society, please contact Bob Sewell at
