Archaeologists digging at the Alamo have discovered an adobe wall that may provide clues to the famous site’s Spanish Colonial history.

The wall, which is about 23 inches below the flagstone surface of San Antonio's Alamo Plaza, was discovered Friday near where historians think the west wall of the complex was built. Experts are working to locate the compound’s original walls.

The location of the famous battle of the Alamo in 1836, the site was first established as a Spanish mission in 1744.

“Last week we very excited to discover we found the remnants of an old adobe brick wall,” explained Nesta Anderson, the dig’s lead investigator and senior archaeologist at Pape-Dawson Engineers, in a press conference Monday. “In the ground, we can see clearly, bricks stacked next to each other, they are made of adobe, so they are very fragile.”
