Publications in Cultural Heritage: Human History of Red Rock Canyon State Park

The Cultural Resources Division of the California Department of Parks and Recreation presents Publications in Cultural Heritage, No. 27, titled  An Archaeological Perspective on the Human History of Red Rock Canyon State Park. This volume is part of the recent renewal of the longstanding series featuring cultural resources related projects conducted within California State Parks. In this report is an overview of 20 years of survey work in the Park documenting the long history of Native American occupation at Red Rock Canyon, as well as numerous historic resources reflecting the last 150 years of use, including extensive mining, old rail and stage lines and as the background setting of dozens of Hollywood movies on the Old West.
