Who We Are...
This project is a study of how the Tennessee Hollow Watershed was used during the Spanish-colonial and the Mexican occupations of the Presidio of San Francisco (ca. 1776-1847). The ultimate goal of this research program is to understand the complex interactions between colonial and native populations, and to trace the emergence of the City of San Francisco from its origins at the Presidio. Our data will also inform the environmental management of the Presidio of San Francisco National Park.
current research takes place in a sheltered valley located in the heart
of the former military outpost. Six years ago, we discovered three archaeological
sites on the valley floor. Who lived at these sites, and why did they
make a home in this valley? How did they live their daily lives? This
project will address these other questions through historical research,
excavation, laboratory analysis, and environmental studies. We welcome
your participation, your visits
to the site, and your thoughts about this investigation.
