Local Event: SDCAS Lecture: Wisdom in Waste: Obsidian Studies and Late Prehistoric Social Systems


Tuesday, February 25, 2014 at 7:30 pm. Los Peñasquitos Adobe. Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve. (Off Black Mountain Road, beyond Canyonside Community Park.)

Presented by San Diego archaeologist Nikki Falvey

Perfect for flint-knapping and beautiful to behold, obsidian is always an exciting find at an archaeological site. However, as an exchange item with at least 80km between its quarry sources and San Diego County, its discovery also provides valuable information about exchange networks during the last period of our local prehistory. This presentation, by San Diego archaeologist Nikki Falvey, will outline how social organization and settlement patterns can be investigated through the examination of obsidian artifact distribution and frequency.

The meeting is free and open to the public.  For directions or additional information, call the San Diego County Archaeological Society at (858) 538-0935, or visit www.sdcas.org.
