Meet an Archeologist

Patricia Mercado-Allinger
State Archeologist for Texas
Texas Historical Commission
Specialty: Texas archeology

Hi:
I first became interested in archeology when I was a young girl, walking around the golf course with my father. Only instead of golf balls, I found arrowheads! I became very interested in how ancient people lived, so I went to school and learned all I could. My job now is to help people protect our archeological heritage. I'll tell you more about Texas archeology in this short video!

I'm the one in the red cap on the right working with other archeologists.
