Big Bear Lake, CA, March 15, 2013 – The Friends of the Big Bear Valley Library will be offering  an interesting archaeological program on March 23 at 2pm. The program will be presented by Adella Schroth, Curator of Anthropology at the San Bernardino County Museum, and the Project Director of the Calico Mountains Archaeological Site (previously known as the “Early Man site”) for the past five years.  The Calico Site is part of the Calico Mountains Archaeological District in the central Mojave Desert, just 16 miles east of Barstow. The dating of the site is still controversial as is the artifactual constituents. This lecture will introduce the Calico site and address two controversies.  It is up to the audience to draw their own conclusions. The program will be held at The Big Bear Lake Branch Library 41930 Garstin Drive, Big Bear Lake. It is open to the general public at no charge. Seating is limited and early arrival is recommended.
