 ONGOING EXHIBIT
 THE GAULT SITE: 
 A WEALTH OF NEW
 ARCHAEOLOGICAL INFORMATION





This permanent exhibit includes large murals, discovery drawers, microscopes and the
new film " The Gault Project: An Adventure in Time," funded by the Texas
Historical Foundation.  The Gault Site has been home to human beings for over
13,000 years.  It is strategically located in the Balcones Ecotone (the boundary zone
of the Edwards Plateau and the Black Prairie and Coastal Plain Ecozone).  The analysis
of materials at the Gault Site provides archaeologists with a unique look into the
lifestyles of the earliest people in Texas and, by extension, the earliest peoples
in the Americas.
