Burned Rock Midden Event: Friday, February 22, 2019 4:00 – 7:00
Join us for a fun and educational Friday evening for the whole family!
Burned rock middens play an important role in the archaeology of Texas. The excavation at the Headwaters is no exception. These prehistoric ovens and discard piles provide many clues about the thousands of years of history at the Comal Springs.
For one evening, visitors will have the chance to see a working, experimental recreation of one of these middens. This program also includes a tour of the site and presentations about archaeology at the Headwaters from content experts. Dinner is included and scouts will have the opportunity to earn their archaeology merit badge!
