Living Room Lecture: Archaeology of Torrey Pines

Join us for a Living Room Lecture on the archaeology and history of Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. People have lived on or near Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve for at least 10,000 years. What does the archaeological record tell us about how they survived? When the Spanish first came to San Diego, the people there were known as the Kumeyaay. What natural resources did they utilize? Did they have a village there? What happened over historical times to those people?

This virtual event will be held on Zoom and is limited to 100 attendees. Registration does not guarantee access if webinar is at capacity. This lecture will live stream on YouTube if capacity is reached: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1u18jko8JsS19NEicQS2cA
