The Geoarcheology Academy is a two and a half-day Texas Archeological Society (TAS) Academy that explores how geological and soil formation processes affect archeological sites, and how investigators use this information to reconstruct both the human and natural histories of an area. This academy will be offered at Victoria College and the McNeill Family Ranch.

Following a series of classroom lectures that introduce basic principles, participants will be in the field working in small groups of ~10 with the instructor to discuss open trench profiles that that have been previously analyzed. Participants can expect to learn a soils-geomorphology approach to interpret a landscape, how geoarcheological analysis can be applied to site excavations, as well as gain an understanding of geoarcheological reports and how best to work with the geoarcheologists for your projects.
