Remember it! Students digging for artifacts at the Alamo
Archaeology students are sifting through dirt at the Alamo in search of artifacts that could shed light on the history of the Texas Revolution battle site.

The project by University of Texas at San Antonio students is the first excavation at the former mission in more than 10 years. The students are digging in an area near the Long Barrack that is believed to be unexplored.

"To me this is amazing, to be able to dig at the Alamo," said Kristi Ulrich, project archaeologist from the school. "It doesn't happen that often."
