CAS Icon Design Contest!
Out with the old, and in with the new!
It’s time for a new icon!
An organization’s icon makes an instant impact. A good icon should reflect the organization’s goals and mission. At the same time, it needs to be easily distinguishable from other organizations’ icons.
Your mission is to design a new icon to represent the Center for Archaeological Studies at Texas State University to the world! The new icon design should reflect our organization’s mission to protect and preserve the cultural heritage of the State of Texas through research and scholarship.
Designs should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before November 15, 2013. Image format should be a high-resolution TIFF or JPG measuring at least 300 ppi. (If a submission displays all or part of the Texas State University name or icon, please refer to the Office of University Marketing Graphic Toolkit at http://www.umktg.txstate.edu/resources/graphic-toolkit.html for further guidelines.)
All submissions will be displayed on the CAS website for voting, and the top three finalists will be presented to the facility Director for final selection. The winner will be announced on the website and on the CAS FaceBook page on December 1, 2013.
The winner will receive the first T-shirt to be produced featuring your artwork & a
$50 $100 cash prize!
Thanks to Dr. Elizabeth Erhart and Dr. Kent Reilly of the Anthropology Department for their generous donations!

Underwater Archaeology at 41HY147, the Terrace Locality at Spring Lake
Jon C. Lohse, ed.
(+ $2.00 S&H)
Underwater archaeological investigations conducted at Spring Lake in the 1970s and 1980s by the late Dr. Joel Shiner contributed significantly to our overall understanding of Central Texas and probably North America. His work not only produced abundant evidence for early, Paleoindian occupations associated with freshwater spring sites. Together with terrestrial excavations, Dr. Shiner's investigations helped demonstrate what appears to be a nearly-continuous sequence of occupation at this site that spans over 13,000 years from Clovis times through the Spanish Colonial era and into the historic period. Using field notes and correspondences held in the records and collections repository at the Center for Archaeological Studies, Texas State University, we reconstruct a history of Shiner’s work at the lake and present new analytic data about the temporally diagnostic artifacts comprising the 41HY147 collection.
This volume features rich illustrations on high-quality coated paper, and contributions by Harry J. Shafer and Thomas C. Hester.
In January 2000, the Center for Archaeological Studies (CAS) was established by Dr. Britt Bousman as a research center within the Department of Anthropology at Texas State University. Since its commencement, CAS has grown through compliance-based cultural resouce management and academic research projects. Additionally, in 2008 CAS became certified by the State of Texas as an Archaeological Curation Facility. CAS is also home to one of the most extensive and growing libraries pertaining to Texas archaeology.
This Web site informs visitors about CAS's role in cultural resource management, Texas archaeology, and ongoing research abroad; introduces CAS's supporting cast; and shares information. For more information, feel free to contact us.
