Jason W. Barrett, TxDOT regulatory archeologist and Texas A&M graduate, will be the speaker for this Houston Archeological Society meeting. The program, which will celebrate Texas Archeology Month, is the first ever public discussion about excavations and artifacts recovered at 41HR796, the Dimond Knoll Site, an archeological site discovered during surveys for the proposed route of SH 99 in northwest Harris County.

Artifacts recovered at this relatively modest sized site include over 830 bifacial dart, arrow and knife forms, representing continuous occupation at the site since the late Paleo-Indian period, dating it as one of the earliest sites ever found in Harris County.

The program will be held in M.D. Anderson Hall at the University of St. Thomas.
