The Little Paint Site: Excavation and Discovery along the South Llano River
In 2006, archaeologists from SWCA, Inc., working on behalf of the Texas Department of Transportation, uncovered what would become known as the Little Paint Site. This site featured a rich and clearly defined Toyah Phase (1300 - 1650 AD) component that quickly became the focus of the excavation.
Working with SWCA, CAS has designed and produced a traveling exhibit of the materials recovered from the Little Paint excavation. The explanatory panels for this exhibit have been carefully designed to provide the museum visitor with a clear understanding of what is currently known about the native people of the Toyah Phase and their lives, while selected artifacts bring the distant past to vibrant life.
