First People: Revised Chronology for San Diego County
Long-time San Diego Archaeologist Dennis R. Gallegos will take a new look at the question, Fiirst People by Land or by Sea? This presentation provides a review of the earliest sites in San Diego County and identifies potential sites/areas for First People.
Fresh water, not always available in the desert, was always available in San Diego County and provided the magnet for continuous occupation throughout the Holocene. Native American occupation was affected by environmental change which included sea level rise, sand transport, health of lagoons, and the creation of San Diego Bay and Lake Cahuilla.
The hypotheses of First People by land and/or by sea, along with continuous occupation and environmental change are all part of this 12,000 year history. Info: San Diego County Archaeological Society, 858-538-0935.
