2012 Pimu-Catalina Island Archaeology Project

An archaeological team headed by Dr. Wendy Teeter, curator of UCLA’s Fowler Museum, have been combing through Catalina’s interior, literally digging for clues to the Island’s past.

The Conservancy, in association with UCLA’s Fowler Museum, will present the 2012 Summer Archaeology Lecture Series at the Nature Center at Avalon Canyon. This is a free series, open to the public. The next event is at 7 p.m., Tuesday, August 14.

Dr Wendy Teeter, along with Desiree Martinez, MA (a descendent of the Tongva tribe) of Harvard University, and Karimah Kennedy-Richardson, MA, RPA, staff archaeologist from the Autry National Center of the American West, will wrap up the series with the “2012 Pimu-Catalina Island Archaeology Project.”
