Discover Santa Barbara this summer by excavating the Spanish fort that founded our city in 1782. Learn how archaeologists study and interpret clues to reconstruct the history of Santa Barbara. Participants will receive instruction from archaeologists on basic excavation techniques, artifact processing methods, artifact identification, archaeological drawing, and mapping. At the end of the week, participants will have a better understanding of how information is recovered and maintained so that it can be used to reconstruct the past. The Presidio Archaeology Day Camp is hosted by the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation, the nonprofit organization that operates El Presidio de Santa Bárbara State Historic Park. Learn about the city of Santa Barbara’s history, while excavating a portion of the original fort and the later Japanese community.

Ages 11-15. Mon.-Fri., July 9-13, 9am-1pm. $225 (snacks & lunch included)
