Imagine life on the shores of the San Antonio River 9,000 to 10,500 years ago. Hard to do? UTSA archaeologists got a glimpse into that life after unearthing more than 500 artifacts while assisting in the San Antonio River Improvement Project in South San Antonio. They found projectile points and woodworking tools thought to be for making canoes all those thousands of years ago.


Closer to downtown San Antonio, archaeologists discovered the trash of one of Bexar County's first surveyors. There were bottles and ceramic fragments, along with meat bones and oyster shells, thought to be from the homestead of John James, who lived along North Presa Street in the mid-1800s.
