The data on skeletal materials from the vicinity of Santa Barbara, California, including the islands of San Miguel, Santa Rosa and Santa Cruz, have appeared periodically in anthropometric studies of the California Indians. The following pages are concerned with the description of skeletal material from a prehistoric group of California Indians. The skeletons which form the subject of this report were the result of two summers (1927, 1928) archaeological work on the island of Santa Cruz in the Santa Barbara Channel off the southern coast of California. they were collected by Dr. R. L. Olson of the Department of Anthropology, University of California.
The Archives of Archaeology Series is a 29-volume set jointly published by the University of Wisconsin Press and the Society for American Archaeology on opaque microcards, a now obsolete format. The Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center at the University of Wisconsin—La Crosse has digitized the original opaque microcards and made the digital copies available through tDAR. More information on the process of digitizing the series can be found in Joseph Tiffany’s 2012 article entitled "Digitizing the Archives of Archaeology Series" in the SAA Archaeological Record (http://onlinedigeditions.com/publication/?i=113770).
