The North Texas Archeological Society (NTAS) is a non-profit organization based in the Fort Worth-Dallas area and dedicated to the promotion of archeological exploration and research, the preservation and curation of archeological materials and sites, the interpretation and publication of the data pertaining thereto, and the education of the public about archeology.
We are based out of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan area and involved with archeological projects across all of northern Texas and other areas.
NTAS was originally the Tarrant County Archeological Society (TCAS), which was founded in 1955 through the efforts of Robert E. “Bob” Forrester and several other members of the Dallas Archeological Society.
For over 60 years, NTAS/TCAS has been extremely active in archeological activities in the North Texas area and throughout the State. We have produced a number of Presidents for the Texas Archeological Society (TAS), hosted several TAS statewide conventions, and provided camp bosses for several TAS summer field schools. Our publications have included: The Catalogue (late 1950s), Tarrant County Archeologist (1975-1977), The Letter (1988-1990), TCAS News (1991-1994), The Benchmark (1995-present), and several Special Publications.
In the early 2000s, local archeological societies in Dallas, Collin County, and Parker County disbanded. As a result, TCAS assumed a larger role in the archeology of the North Texas region. Reflecting increased membership from many surrounding counties, the Tarrant County Archeological Society changed its name to the North Texas Archeological Society effective January 1, 2019. In January 2020, NTAS adopted a revised Constitution and Bylaws.
