Alex DeGeorgey, MA, RPA, of Alta Archaeological Consulting will speak about the “Archaeology of the Stege Mound” at the SCAS general meeting on January 15, 2015 at 7:30 pm.
The Stege Mound is a large prehistoric Ohlone village site located on the shoreline of the San Francisco Bay. The village was occupied between AD 1350-1770, during the time period immediately preceeding Spanish settlement and missionization of the region. Recent archaeological investigations of the shellmound recovered a substantial assemblage of artifacts and documented a complex of prehistoric features. This presentation will explore aspects of social complexity, subsistence pursuits, and economic diversity represented in the archaeology of the Stege Mound.
