The Society is sponsoring a field trip on Friday, March 25th to the GAULT ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE, located just north of Austin. The Gault Site is a protected 40-acre site with abundant evidence of past human occupation. Between 1999 and 2002, 1.4 million artifacts were recovered and a unique stone floor was discovered, as well as 100+ engraved stones, amongst the earliest art in the Americas.
This members-only field trip is $20. which includes entrance fee and trip cost. To reserve your spot, click on the EVENT BOOKING TAB.
The Gault Site is a walking tour that is 1.5 miles roundtrip—an easy walk, but a fairly long one. A four-person golf cart is available on the site that can take you anyplace the rest of the tour goes. Let us know if you need the cart.
The tour is from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm. We plan to car pool from Old Town leaving at 7:00 am, and will leave the site at 2:00 pm. Bring a bagged lunch.
PLEASE CONTACT US NOW IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ATTENDING.
