Texas Archeology Academy
Texas Archeology Academies 2012
All TAS Academies are intended for anyone interested in archeological topics: avocational archeologists experience new dimensions of expertise, professional archeologists benefit from review, and students can learn additional information outside of school curricula. Additionally, teachers may receive continuing education credit for attending. Refreshments, as well as lunch, will be provided by the Texas Archeological Society. All other meals and accommodations, however, are the responsibility of each participant.
