Texas Beyond History
Texas Beyond History is a virtual museum covering 13,500 years of human history, from Clovis hunter-gatherers to Spanish Colonial missionaries, frontier soldiers, and 20th-century Mexican-American cotton farmers. More than 7,500 images and interactive graphics illustrate nearly 100 online "exhibits" on significant archeological sites as well as broad, thematic presentations, such as "Nineteenth-Century Forts and the Clash of Cultures on the Texas Frontier." There are also correlated resources for K-12 students, curricula for teachers, illustrated glossaries, and FAQ's for learning about the discipline of archeology. Created at the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (University of Texas at Austin) in collaboration with dozens of experts in archeology, history, and related fields from across the state, the website is designed to share the meaningful results of research with the citizens of Texas and the world.
