Hi, kids, I'm Dr. Dirt. I've
been digging for lots more years than we nine-banded armadillos
are supposed to live. But I'm not just any armadilloI'm an
archeologist, and I've studied the Texas past from El Paso to Port
Arthur, Texarkana to Del Rio, and Brownsville to Pampa. Along the
dusty trail, I've learned a thing or two about the over 500 generations
of people who have called Texas home. That's my professionarcheology.
What that means is, I study the lives of people of the pastsometimes
from thousands of years agoby looking at the things they left
behind. The answer, as I like to say, is in the dirt.
Below you'll find answers to some
of your questions on particular topics. But if you have a question
you'd like me to answer, send it to me, Dr. Dirt. I may not be able
to answer each of your questions separately, but I'll do my best
to get to as many as I can. So check back!
