It is with the greatest of sadness that we share the news of the untimely passing of our dear friend and colleague, Alston Thoms, who passed peacefully on the 3rd of June. Alston had been with our department for more than 30 years, and was at the core of our CRM program for many years. His outreach efforts with the Indigenous Peoples of Texas helped to transform archaeology in the state, as did his research into the evolution of plant-food cooking technology. Alston was a kind and caring friend and mentor, and we will miss him deeply.
