Description

Edited by former College at Brockport faculty member C. Todd White.

Collection of papers by Claude N. Warren, a California desert anthropologist and specialist in early man in the Far West, who has been instrumental in defining the San Dieguito and La Jolla cultural complexes. He is a distinguished professor emeritus from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

The San Dieguito Complex is an archaeological pattern left by early Holocene inhabitants of southern Caliornia and surrounding portions of the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico, around 8,200 BCE.

The archaeological La Jolla Complex (Shell Midden People, Encinitas Tradition, Millingstone Horizon) represents a prehistoric culture oriented toward coastal resources that prevailed during the middle Holocene period between c. 6000 BC and AD 500 in southwestern California and northwestern Baja California.
