Join archeologist Tiffany Osburn for this program which will highlight the Hill Country archeological sites and artifacts that have revealed information about people who lived here before us. These sites are the product of more than 10,000 years of human history in our area and can shed light on our ancient past. We will look at how advancing technology increases the data potential of sites and how preservation of archeological sites can ensure they will be available in the future for even greater discovery.
