Ellis County Historical Commission and the Ellis County Museum
at 7:00 PM, Thursday, October 11th
201 South College Street (Ellis County Museum)
to celebrate Archeology Awareness Month.
Dr. James Bruseth, Texas Historical Commission Archeology Division Director, will give a presentation
on the excavation and preservation of the Belle, one of La Salle’s ships
that sank in Matagorda Bay more than 300 years ago.
The talk will describe the efforts that took place inside a large, steel cofferdam built around the shipwreck in the Gulf of Mexico.
I believe it will only be for Ellis County Museum members but I will try to attend. The greatest ship wreck find in North America!
