An adobe brick wall, but still no bicycle, found at the Alamo

Archaeologists recently discovered the subterranean remains of an adobe brick wall that may be part of the original west wall of the Misión San Antonio de Valero in San Antonio, now known more popularly as the Alamo. The Alamo was recently included in the recently (2015) inscribed San Antonio Missions World Heritage Site. While many may believe the Alamo had no basement, according to the popular movie Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, the recent archaeological discovery indicates at least there is still some interesting historical evidence buried under the site.
