We are Celebrating 50 Years of Archaeology at El Presidio de Santa Bárbara State Historic Park!

2011 marks the 50th anniversary of the first archaeological excavations at the Santa Barbara Presidio.  This Thursday at 7:00pm in the Presidio Chapel, Bob Hoover and Mike Imwalle, two archaeologists with decades of combined experience in the field, will be presenting an illustrated lecture on excavations at the Presidio.  To help gear up for what promises to be an informative lecture by our favorite experts, we are doing a special series on the blog.  For the next three days we will be presenting mystery objects excavated on the Presidio site.  Can you guess what they are?  All will be revealed when Mike Imwalle announces the answers at the end of the lecture on Thursday.

Here’s your first mystery object(s):  have fun!
