Lecture: Community Engagement in Archaeology

at the Nathan Harrison Site

This talk examines how archaeology at San Diego's Nathan Harrison Site has inspired a new generation of muralists, historians, playwrights, and others to create innovative works and continued relevance for Nathan Harrison’s evolving narratives. It offers a brief Harrison biography, an overview of the project, an explanation of Harrison’s dual identity, code-switching, and historical minstrelsy, and a discussion of the project’s case for significance beyond the dig, including public exhibits, educational curricula, and creative arts.

This lecture will be held on Zoom.

Artifact Illustration Class

May 18, 2024

The San Diego Archaeological Center is proud to host Donna Walker for an artifact drawing workshop. Unlike other professions where digital technology has replaced traditional methods, researchers in archaeology still rely on the detailed drawings that an illustrator can produce. Just open an archaeological report, magazine, or book, and you’ll find the majority of stone tools and pottery are shown as hand-done line drawings along with the photographs. Having both photographs and illustrations provides a complete analysis and a better representation of the artifact. In this class, you’ll learn this valuable technical skill of drawing chipped stone tools.

Art supplies and snacks will be provided. To register, call 858-829-5861 or email donna.walker05@gmail.com and bring cash or check on day of class.

Lecture: A Field Guide to Pseudoscience

May 16, 2024

Is there archaeological evidence that giant, human-like creatures once walked the Earth? Did the Lost Tribes of Israel visit New Mexico, etching the Ten Commandments into a boulder? Did Native Americans encounter visitors from other planets, painting images of space-suited aliens on canyon walls in Utah? Have archaeologists discovered the far western outpost of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh, not in Egypt but in California?

This Zoom lecture with Dr. Ken Feder will reveal the truth underlying these and many other ancient mysteries. Spoiler alert: The answer to each of them is a resolute “no!” Nevertheless, the stories behind these and other wild claims about the ancient past are fascinating and occasionally a little hilarious. As a bonus, we will tell you how you can personally visit these places and see them for yourselves.
