Announces '96 Field School
Clarendon will be the site of this year's
Texas Archaeological Society Field School
The prehistoric site that will be excavated
is a large, predominately late prehistoric
Plains Woodland and Plains Village
habitation site. Its several episodes of occupation
may have begun as early as the Late
Archaic Period and continued well into
this millennium. The site was originally
recorded in the 1960s, when testing exposed
pithouse, pottery, bits of bone, and
stone tools. Many years of looting have
destroyed large portions of the Clarendon
The annual field school is open to everyone
regardless of age or experience.
Projects are directed by experienced professional
and avocational archaeologists
with training available for persons with any
level of skill and experience, from novices
to old hands. Activities include excava
tion or survey, afternoon workshops, and

Matching Grant Benefits
Texas Historical Foundation
The drive to raise $20,000 in donations,
to be matched with a grant from Charlie
and Sarah Meadows Seay of Dallas, is still
in progress. The Dallas couple, philanthropists
and long-time Texans, issued the challenge
grant to the Texas Historical Foundation
in January. Thus far, about half of
the monies have been raised.
According to THF President John B.
Meadows, the Foundation Board of Directors
has agreed that only the income generated
from the grant principal will be used
for funding preservation projects, so that
the Sarah Meadows and Charles E. Seay
Grant will become a perpetual fund of the
Texas Historical Foundation.
Said Meadows, "We have had a great
start to our fundraising efforts. But now, if
we can raise the remainder of this money
and have it matched by the Seays, the
Foundation will be well on its way to achieving
our preservation goals for the future."
He added, "This is really a great way for
supporters of Texas history to make the
most of their preservation donations, as
each contribution will be matched dollarfor-dollar."
Meadows reminded members and other
interested contributors that gifts to the
Texas Historical Foundation are tax deductible.
Pledges to this fundraising effort should
be earmarked appropriately and sent to:
Texas Historical Foundation, Sarah Meadows
and Charles E. Seay Fund, P.O. Box
50314, Austin, Texas 78763.
