Settlement Patterns in Southeastern Sacramento County

Author(s): Josh Allen

Year: 2015


Twenty years of cultural resource management efforts have culminated in over four thousand acres of inventoried land in southeastern Sacramento County. With nearly one hundred recorded lithic scatters, middens, bedrock mortars, rock art, and rock shelter sites this data offers the chance to better understand prehistoric settlement patterns along the Cosumnes River and Deer Creek drainages. The data, normally contained in fragmented surveys and limited testing, is an initial look at the potential offered by these studies with future hopes to expand research opportunities and knowledge in the area.
