"Celebrate the Holidays with a Look Back at 2019 With the Houston Archeological Society " - Linda Gorski

Linda Gorski
Please join us for the Houston Archeological Society’s final meeting of the year on Thursday, December 12th at 6:30 p.m. at the Trini Mendenhall Community Center, 1414 Wirt Road in Houston. Linda Gorski, HAS President, will present the annual “Year in Review” program, highlighting the many projects that the Society has been involved in during 2019 including archeological surveys, excavations and other activities in and around the Houston area. The meeting is free of charge and open to the public. Please note that this meeting is being held on the second Thursday of the month - a week earlier than our normal third Thursday! The meeting will begin with our popular monthly “show and tell” at 6:30pm and the program will start at 7:00 p.m.  The meeting will also include a special holiday themed snack buffet for members and guests.  Please bring a holiday snack to share!

Gorski’s presentation will include HAS participation in shovel testing surveys and labs at San Felipe de Austin State Historic Site, the Emergency Salvage Archeology Project for the City of Houston at the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center, surveys and shovel testing at a prehistoric site in Colorado County, and outreach programs such as International Archeology Day at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, Diggin’ Old Stuff Day at Kleb Woods Nature Center, the Heritage Festival at Spring Creek Park, Archeology Day at the San Jacinto Battlefield and many more. She will also report on HAS lab activities, education programs, publications, and awards that the Society has received in 2019 and will give a preview of what HAS members can expect in 2020. Photos of many HAS members will be highlighted in this presentation so come and see yourself on the big screen!

Linda Gorski is serving her seventh term as president of the Houston Archeological Society. She is also a Texas Historical Commission Archeological Steward representing Harris County. Gorski is a published co-author of several books with HAS member Louis Aulbach including Camp Logan, Houston, Texas, 1917-1919, which is a detailed account of the activities of the military regiments that trained at Camp Logan during World War I. Their latest publications are entitled Along the Aurelian Wall, Campus Martius and Its Ancient Monuments, The Public Lands of Ostia Antica and The Constantine Basilicas.
