You Can Dig It (Archaeology)

  1. 1. 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.
  2. 2. Cow bones, both burnt and unburnt, leave small traces of the Peralta’s extensive rancho.
  3. 3. The Peralta’s trash pits included fragments of luxury ceramics, which the Peraltas traded for their cowhides and tallow.
