The Falcon exhibit was written by Mindy Bonine and TBH Co-Editor Susan Dial. Archeologist Chris Lintz also contributed to the Site Destruction section.
A Senior Project Manager for SWCA Environmental Consultants of Austin, Bonine received her MA degree in Anthropology at the University of Texas at Austin, focusing her thesis studies on Spanish Colonial archeology and, specifically, two of the Falcon area rancho sites. In recent years Mindy has conducted several archeological investigations in the border area, including a survey of areas around the Palo Alto Battlefield National Historic Site, research into the development of early irrigation systems in the Rio Grande Valley, and investigations of early Anglo American settlement in the border area. She has also undertaken a comparative analysis of artifacts from the Spanish Colonial rancho sites at Falcon Reservoir with artiacts from Rancho de las Cabras, a Mission rancho affiliated with Mission San Francisco de la Espada in San Antonio.
