News Release
Wednesday, September 19, 2018

October marks the beginning of Texas Archeology Month, a month-long celebration of Texas’ archeological heritage. Numerous organizations and institutions host public events to heighten awareness and appreciation of this heritage in communities across the state.

In recognition of Texas Archeology Month, the Brazoria County Historical Museum will kick-off its Archeological Lecture Series Thursday, October 4th at 6:30pm with author Mark Lardas. Lardas will discuss his latest book “Texas Shipwrecks,” which explores Spanish treasure fleets to simple working boats that blanket the coastal waters and rivers.

On Thursday, October 11th at 6:30pm, project archeologist and VP of Prewitt and Associates, Inc. Doug Boyd will present “Frost Town.” Boyd will present his discoveries while excavating the remains of Frost Town, Houston’s first working class neighborhood founded in the 1830s.  

The third program in the series is “Gatorliths: Alligator Gut Gravels” presented by Dr. August Costa. Dr. Costa considers evidence that sheds new light on the argument that the indigenous inhabitants of the Galveston Bay area exploited alligator stomach stones for chipped stone tool making.

Our final program will be held on Thursday, October 25th at 6:30pm and will feature internationally recognized forensic sculptor Amanda Danning. Danning will be present “Killing Levi Morris,” the tragic tale of a Buffalo Soldier buried at Fort Craig Cemetery who went from slave to soldier to death by axe.

All programs are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided thanks to Kroger of Angleton. The Brazoria County Historical Museum is located at 100 East Cedar, Angleton TX 77515. For more information follow us on Facebook or call 979-864-1208.
