Our Mission

The Travis County Archeological Society is made up of individuals committed to understanding the Texas past through the study of the material evidence (e.g., artifacts) that people left behind.  Some TvCAS members are professional archeologists, but archeology is a hobby -- or a calling -- for most of us. Members live throughout Austin and the five-county capital area.

The Society was founded in 1959.  As stated in our bylaws, our purpose is "to encourage the archeological education of the membership and the public through the conservation, study, interpretation, and publication of evidences of prehistory and history, especially in Travis County and vicinity, by promoting the scientific study of archeology in accordance with any applicable laws and with the ethical standards stated in these Bylaws."

The EIN for TvCAS is: 74-6075218
