    You Can Dig It (Archaeology) You Can Dig It (Archaeology) Document Transcript

    • Archaeology is the study of objects from the past. It can tell about the daily life of people who are often left out of the history books: children, women, and Native American workers. 30,000 rancho objects from the site are catalogued in a thesis about Peralta Hacienda by Cheryl Smith-Lintner, and many are on display at the Peralta House.
    • Cow bones, both burnt and unburnt, leave small traces of the Peralta’s extensive rancho.
    • The Peralta’s trash pits included fragments of luxury ceramics, which the Peraltas traded for their cowhides and tallow.
