We are only $35,000 away from our $100,000 match for 2014!


Last year we received an exciting challenge from one generous foundation -- raise $100,000 and we will match the money dollar for dollar

ith your generosity and support we did it. We raised $100,000 and received a $100,000 match in support of the Shumla Border Canyonlands Archaeological Project (BCAP) for 2013.


This year the foundation has pledged the match again! To date, we have raised over $65,000. 
We are so close to our 2014 goal.


Please help us to reach our $100,000 goal again this year.


The money we raise makes a huge difference in our ability to continue to:
  • Document the threatened rock art of the Lower Pecos
  • Develop site management plans with property owners
  • Acquire and utilize cutting-edge technology in our documentation and research
  • Inform researchers and the general public of our research findings
  • Maintain terabytes of rock art recording data
  • And much more...

You are the key to our success!


Please visit and click on the "Donate" icon in the upper right corner of the homepage, or mail your gift to Shumla, P.O. Box 627, Comstock, TX 78837.

Introducing our Newest Intern, Jerod Roberts!

Jerod Roberts is a recent graduate from Texas State University where he majored in Anthropology with a minor in Geography. As the Vice-President, and later President of the Experimental Archaeology Club he began to work on a long overdue project based in the Lower Pecos. He was formally introduced to the Lower Pecos in 2012 by Dr. Steve Black and has participated in a multitude of field sessions including the 2013 Texas State/Shumla joint field school in Eagle Nest Canyon at Langtry.  Jerod quickly proved himself a capable team member and problem solver. He is definitely a "Jack" -of-all-trades, with skills in carpentry, GIS, computer hardware, remote sensing, and more. 

Jerod joined the Shumla team for the Texas Archeological Society meeting this year in San Marcos. He had this to share:
     "If I had to choose one thing I enjoyed the most at TAS, it would have to be "the call to arms" I experienced.  At the end of Audrey's presentation discussing the recent flooding events in the Lower Pecos and how the next big one may destroy a well-preserved rock art site, someone from the back raised their hand and started to speak in a very troubled voice, "Is there anything we can do to prevent this rock art
