Fort Bend Archeological Society
The Fort Bend Archeological Society is an affiliate of the Fort Bend History Association. The Society held its first meeting in 1993 and is involved in numerous projects throughout the county. Come get involved and see what history you can dig up!
Join the Fort Bend Archeological Society at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 21 to hear retired Texas Parks & Wildlife archeologist Ron Ralph talk about Palo Duro Canyon. As America's second-largest canyon, Palo Duro has been inhabited for 12,000 years.
The Clovis and Folsom peoples first lived in the canyon, and more recently, the Apache, Comanche and Kiowa. The Canyon was the site of the decisive battle of the Red River War, and home to expansive ranches. In 1934, Palo Duro Canyon became a Texas State Park. Ron will share the beauty and mystery of Palo Duro and will also present the objectives of this year’s archeology field school (in which all society members are encouraged to participate).
Note that the lecture will take place on the 2nd floor of the Gus George Law Enforcement Academy in Richmond. Cost is free!
