CVAS Meeting Presentation
Oct 27th, 7 p.m.

This presentation, by Will Keller , will provide a broad overview of archeology in the greater Big Bend region of Texas with a focus on recent discoveries made through the Trans-Pecos Archeology Program at the Center for Big Bend Studies. Despite a long hiatus of cultural research in the region, over the past fifteen years, a range of new discoveries is changing the way we view the prehistory of the Big Bend. Join us as we discuss some of the most exciting cutting-edge research in the last frontier of Texas.

Will Keller earned an M.A. in Environmental History from the University of Montana in 1996 and taught field courses for the University of Montana and San Francisco State University before moving to Alpine in 2001. He has conducted historical and archeological research in the Northern Rockies, the Southern High Plains, and the Big Bend region of Texas.  He is the author of The Making of a Masterpiece: The Stewardship History of the Rocky Mountain Front and the Bob Marshall Wilderness, Below the Escondido Rim:  A History of the O2 Ranch in the Texas Big Bend, Images of America:  Alpine, and his forthcoming book, In the Shadow of the Chinatis: A History of Pinto Canyon in the Big Bend of Texas.  He is presently Senior Project Archaeologist at the Center for Big Bend Studies at Sul Ross State University./
