Special Announcements & Volume 5

Greetings and Happy Holidays to all!  We are very pleased to share several JTAH announcements today.

First, we are excited to announce JTAH Volume 5 (2018/2019) is now available online, just click HERE where you may either read or download the complete volume.  Individual articles are listed below; click on them to read or download each of them. Volume 5 includes our first Spanish language article, a translation of Amy Borgens terrific article discussing the Boca Chica shipwreck which first appeared as Article 1 in Volume 4.  We plan this to be only the first of many Spanish articles.  Also included in this volume is our Special Publication No. 4 that was first published as a stand-alone publication for Texas Parks & Wildlife Department and Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum.  This interesting article covers archeological investigations at Palo Duro Canyon State Park.

It is our great honor and pleasure to announce two leading experts in archeology, including specialties in botany and underwater (marine) archeology, have joined the all-volunteer management team at Journal of Texas Archeology and History.org, Inc.   Dr. Ashley K. Lemke has joined our corporate Board of Directors and will spearhead a new initiative to publish a collection of graduate research papers in a journal we call “The Best of Graduate Research from the Texas Borderlands Region”.  Ashley is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Texas Arlington and is Vice-Chair with the Advisory Council for Underwater Archaeology.  Also joining us in the important role of Co-Editor-in-Chief is Dr. J. Kevin Hanselka.  Kevin is an archeologist at the Texas Department of Transportation, and a practicing consulting archeobotanist specializing in Mexico and the American Southwest. He studied plant use on Late Archaic farming villages in Chihuahua is continuing research into emergent agricultural economies in Tamaulipas as well as volunteering his services at the SHUMLA school.  Both individuals bring great expertise and vision to the JTAH.
