A tornado hit the Gault site in April and knocked out about 20 trees. Fortunately, no major damage to the structure or to the home of the Lindseys, who live adjacent to the site. Although further down the road toward Salado, the damage was immense. The crew and I were there with Mike Collins on May 7 to witness over 100 volunteers help clean up. It was moving to see so many people devoted to protecting this site.
Mike Collins enjoyed answering questions from a promising young archaeology student who is spending his summer in the Gault lab at TARL (Texas Archaeological Research Center at UT Austin.)
