Historical Note

Founded by the Texas Antiquities Code which passed the state legislature in 1969, the Texas Antiquities Committee preserves, protects, and exhibits archaeological and cultural resources, including artifacts, sites, and historic structures in Texas. The agency acts as the legal custodian for all archaeological sites and material culture owned by the state of Texas and also issues contracts and permits for excavation. Although the agency is an independent entity, it is affiliated with the Texas Historical Commission, sharing many services, resources, and facilities with one another.
