Victor Galan participated in the documentation, testing, and excavation in numerous archaeological sites within the Caddo region over the last 30 years. As an undergraduate, at Stephen F Austin State University, he participated in several surveys and he was the student assistant on the Archaic/Caddo Mast (41NA157) site. During his Masters degree at the University of Arkansas, he documented and participated in testing of multiple Caddoan sites within the Ouachita Mountains. His work at EH&A included testing multiple sites in Northeast Texas and serving as Principal Investigator at the Caddo Ear Spool (41TT653) site. Upon returning to Nacogdoches, he directed two SFASU field schools at the Spradley Sign (41NA206) site, conducted surveys and testing efforts across the Caddo region, and served as Co-Principal investigator for excavations at the Honey Locust (41SM476) with his experience and PhD from Texas A&M University.
