BIG BEND - Mexican artifacts and analysis records discovered by a Fort Davis team of archaeologists, both now deceased, that have been in the possession of the Center for Big Bend Studies of Sul Ross State University were recently repatriated. Mexican authorities from the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia/National Institute of Anthropology and History and the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs came to Alpine Sep. 11-13. They inventoried, repackaged (as needed), and loaded the artifacts for transport back to Mexico. The collection was extensive, filling half of a 10 x 10 x 10-foot storage unit in Alpine.
