MONTHLY HAS MEETING June 24th, 2021.

Thursday, June 24th, 2021, at 6:30 p.m. “Report on TAS Field School plus Announcing Updates to HAS Constitution"

As most of you know, the Houston Archeological Society does not normally hold a June meeting nor do we normally publish a newsletter in June due to many of our members attending the Texas Archeological Field School. However, obviously we have a newsletter this month because you are reading it!  We will also have a June meeting for members only on Thursday, June 24th, starting at 6:30 p.m. to discuss some edits to the HAS Constitution followed by reports from members who attended the Texas Archeological Society Field School. HAS members will receive a Zoom link to this meeting.

If you have any questions about this program, please contact HAS President, Linda Gorski, at lindagorski@cs.com.

These papers include research on material that ranges from potentially before Clovis, to the Paleoindian, Archaic, Late Prehistoric, and Historic periods.

Report #36. The Lone Oak site is located in northern Colorado County approximately 0.6 km east of the Fayette County line. The site is 7.5 kilometers (4.65 miles) northwest of the community of Frelsburg, Texas, and 25 kilometers north of Columbus, the county seat of Colorado County. The site was named by the land owner after a small historic community of the same name near the property. Both the name and the site’s location have been registered with the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory in Austin and a trinomial number was assigned to the Lone Oak site (41CD168).
