Spanish Colonial Academy

This is a new TAS Academy for 2018, to be offered for San Antonio’s Tricentennial celebration! The event will introduce Spanish Colonial archeology to registrants through a series of lectures and instruction with the goal for attendees to take home lessons learned through hands-on activities and a detailed manual about this important period of history. The Spanish Colonial Academy is planned in San Antonio during the tricentennial to accompany the TAS Annual Meeting which will also be in San Antonio during 2018. The Spanish Colonial Academy instructor, Dr. Tamra Walter, Professor of Anthropology - Texas Tech University, will also continue overseeing the 2018 TAS Field School investigations at Mission San Lorenzo. This TAS Academy will be held at the River House (on the San Antonio River) a part of Steve’s Homestead in the historic King William District of San Antonio. At least one walking tour of a nearby Spanish Colonial site (such as a mission) will be part of this TAS Academy.

San Antonio offers opportunities for visiting the famed Riverwalk, shopping, historic sites, and much more. Numerous lodging options are available including nice hotels, bed and breakfasts, camping, and much more are easily available in the San Antonio area. As with the other TAS Academies, the registration costs for all current TAS members is $100. Non-members must first join TAS in order to enroll and participate.

Lodging options in San Antonio, Texas and nearby are available on the San Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau website.
