Excavations begin at the Alamo

Excavations are underway at the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, to find the original south and western adobe walls.

With a surgeon’s precision, engineers are digging around what is believed to be the outer boundaries of the Alamo to gather missing pieces of its history. Nesta Anderson is the lead investigator at the site.

“The master plan is in full swing and as part of the master plan they are asking some questions about what we know about the Alamo, and the answer with the archeology is not as much as you’d think.”

This excavation is the first step in creating the Alamo’s master plan which will determine how to develop the original Alamo site. Kay Hindes, is the city archeologist.
