Anthropologists study ancient skeletal remains found at La Jolla Cove, 1960. No indexed information pertaining to this discovery is available at the downtown library, but prehistoric bones have been found “in the Cliffs at La Jolla” for over 100 years. The earliest Union article to report such a discovery was in 1901, when J. Jessop uncovered the skeleton of a man and “many implements believed to date before the glacial period.”
