Thanks to the Houston Archaeological Society

Posted in Memory by Andy Hall on October 18, 2012

I’d like to thank the good folks at the Houston Archaeological Society, and HAS President Linda Gorski in particular, for the hospitality they showed me at their meeting this evening at St. Thomas University in Houston. I know I had a great time talking about research on the archaeology of blockade runners on the Texas coast. There were lots of questions from the audience, which is usually a good sign.

Please also allow me to give a nod to the book Linda helped compile with Louis F. Aulbach, Buffalo Bayou: An Echo of Houston’s Wilderness Beginnings, that traces the development of Houston and the surrounding area as seen from the banks of the old Arroyo Cibilo.  It’s a remarkable story, and this exhaustive collection of mini-histories really is a valuable addition to anyone’s library of local history.
