Dr. Bruseth will discuss how archaeologists from the Texas Historical Commission located and excavated La Belle, called by Smithsonian Magazine one of the most important shipwreck discoveries ever made in North America. He will also present some of the mysteries surrounding the wreck and the plans for a world–class exhibit of La Belle at the Bullock Texas State History Museum. His talk is titled “From A Watery Grave: Discovery and Excavation of La Salle’s shipwreck, La Belle.”
We may even have an opportunity for selfies with a live longhorn steer! Be sure to practice your horseshoe toss and bring your camera. There’s also a cave on-site.

Be sure to make early plans to attend; Austin is a very popular spring destination and flights and rooms fill up quickly. South by Southwest SXSW is a set of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences which began in 1987 and takes place in Austin every year. This year, it is scheduled for the week prior to SAGEEP (March 13-22, 2015) - so the city and airport will be busy! The SAGEEP hotel room block will include 3 days prior to SAGEEP, so plan to come early and attend this iconic Austin spring event!
