Event description

Description

Presentation (first in a two-part series) with archaeologist Dr. Mara Vejby

The North Bay has a rich and unique history within California. Its environment, particularly its waterways, has shaped human culture and migration for thousands of years. In part one of this two-part lecture we will wade into the cultural significance of the North Bay waterways to the native peoples of the region. We will then navigate the use of these rivers as political boundaries between the Russians and the Spanish in the 1800s. Part two, “How Waterways Wrote Our History: The 1800s to Present,” takes place Saturday, July 14. Details here.

Dr. Mara Vejby is an archaeologist and the founder of Locality Research and Preservation. She currently works as an analyst for the Board of Supervisors in Santa Clara County. Dr. Vejby’s interest in how people interact with the past has shaped her research in Europe and California, and it continues to influence her work to preserve our local history and archaeology.
