Publications

TARL currently produces three publication series: Studies in Archeology, a Technical Series, and an Archival Series.

  • Studies in Archeology - includes new or original manuscripts including current TARL projects in Texas and beyond
  • Technical Series - contains brief cultural resource management or other technically-oriented reports
  • Archival Series - newly published manuscripts and reports from TARL's archives. Check out the latest -- The 1931 Excavations at the Sanders Site, Lamar County, Texas.

TARL issues the Newsletter of the Friends of the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory, an update on current projects and recent accomplishments at TARL. Archives for the Newsletter are available online. TARL also produces TARL Research Notes, an occasional journal sponsored by the Friends of TARL, with papers highlighting current research of TARL staff, Department of Anthropology faculty and students, and Friends members. In addition, TARL also houses the Rio Azúl Series by the University of Texas San Antonio (including work from Fred Valdez at UT Austin) and the Papers of the Colha Project, a series of reports, often published in collaboration with other universities, focused upon research at the Maya site of Colha in Belize, Central America. TARL has available some reports from several discontinued publication series documenting older archeological research projects done by UT Austin.
