Event Details

San Diego is blessed with abundant natural and cultural resources. Over 36,000 archaeological sites have been discovered in San Diego County. These sites contain the material culture of people who have lived in the region for over 10,000 years. This presentation will reveal what archaeology has uncovered about the ancient peoples who called San Diego home. Archaeology is a wonderful tool for understanding the past and bringing context to the present. Join us for a free virtual Living Room Lecture via Zoom on 10,000 years of San Diego history and a new understanding of the past.
