TAS Field School
It is with great sadness that the Texas Archeological Society must announce the cancellation of the 2020 TAS Field School due to COVID-19 concerns. Our primary consideration is for the safety of our members. There is simply no way of knowing what the pandemic situation will be in early June and we feel it would be irresponsible to continue planning and implementation of a large gathering at this time.
We will begin issuing refunds for field school registrations as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience in this difficult time.
We are happy to report that Marvin Gohlke, landowner for our field school in Kerrville, will extend his welcome to TAS in June 2021. We appreciate the time and effort that members of the Local Arrangements Committee, the Hill Country Archeological Association, Eric Oksanen, and the TAS Field School Committee have contributed toward the planning and logistics for field school. Those efforts will result in an even more educational, successful, fun-filled event in 2021.

TAS Annual Field School
Kerrville - June 2021
Each summer, the Texas Archeological Society (TAS) sponsors a week-long archeological field school. The program provides training in archeological techniques to Society members and contributes important new data to the state's archeological and historical heritage. Activities and learning opportunities are offered for all ages, including excavation techniques, survey methods, and special training for newcomers and teachers.
The TAS field school spans seven days and is led by professional archeologists and trained avocationals. Participants may register for a minimum of three days or for the full week and choose excavation, survey, or the laboratory. Volunteers may also participate in the afternoon and evening workshops, educational programs, and social activities that are spread throughout the week. Several Field School Scholarships are also available.
