The Alamo Underground: Recent Excavations at Mission San Antonio de Valero
Author(s): Nesta J. Anderson
Recent excavations at the Mission San Antonio de Valero (the Alamo) revealed that in the midst of the highly developed urban landscape of San Antonio, pockets of archaeological deposits remain nestled between utilities, streets, and beautification improvements. Excavations at the west and south wall complexes revealed evidence of architectural features and three centuries of refuse left behind by San Antonio's residents as they reinvented the physical landscape. The diversity of material culture recovered echoes the rich cultural diversity of San Antonio's inhabitants today as the city continues to grow around its historic resources.
