The Big Bend Archeological Society is a place to bring people with an active interest in the cultural heritage of the Big Bend region together. We actively promote the preservation and conservation of archeological and historic resources of the region, and actively discourage the destruction of the cultural heritage that occurs through such things as relic collecting, unscientific digging, and illegal importation and commercial trade in archeological materials.
The S.T.A.A. is a regional scientific and educational organization for individuals and groups interested in the archaeology, ethnohistory and prehistory of south-central and southern Texas. The association was established in December 1973 with about 45 members and rapidly grew to a continuing level of about 450 individuals.
We are a volunteer organization that works with local landowners to investigate and record prehistoric and historic archeological sites on their property; and with local organizations, schools and colleges to teach about the archeology of the area. We also provide a venue for the students and general public to become involved with studying and recording the remains of those who came before us.
