Texas Archeology Month

TAM is back in 2021!

TAM Events are held all across the state throughout the month of October. Most are family-friendly and include events such as Archeology Days with hands-on activities and demonstrations, museum tours and special exhibits, lectures and presentations, history walks, and more! TAM planning is underway, and this year we anticipate a return of in-person events. However, the THC is stil committed to keeping TAM accessible for people throughout the state by continuing to promote virtual events through our website again this year as well.
