The ZOOM meeting will be held for members only on Thursday, August 20 at 7:00 p.m. HAS members should watch for an email detailing how to join this meeting closer to the date.

Ashley Jones

As members of HAS, we are frequently included in professional archeology projects. Have you ever wondered why a particular project was being undertaken or why a particular location was being excavated? Ashely will answer these questions by presenting an overview of the history of CRM archeology in the US and Texas and how this led to the development of archeology as a profession. She will discuss cultural resources and why they need to be managed, the roles of professional archeologists, the laws and regulations that guide archeological investigations, and the different phases of archeological field work.

Ashley joined MAC/CEI in 2018. She has extensive cultural resource management experience including participating in pedestrian surveys, test excavations, and large-scale data recovery excavations across the southwestern United States. She has completed field investigations in Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio, New Mexico and Arizona. In addition to serving on the HAS Board, Ashley serves as PI (Principal Investigator) on the Kleb Woods Nature Center Public archeology program in northwest Harris County.

When she is not in the field, Ashely also serves as a commissioner on the City of Houston’s Archeological and Historical Commission (HAHC) and is the Director of Student Relations for the Houston Chapter of WTS, an international organization for transportation industry professionals

For more information about the August meeting and program, which you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home in front of your own computer, email lindagorski@cs.com. As soon as this Covid pandemic is over we plan to begin meeting in person again at the Trini Mendenhall Community Center.
