Date Revised: August 15, 2010

CAL FIRE initiated a publication series in 1988 entitled CAL FIRE Archaeological Reports. The purpose of this publication is to distribute the results of some of the major archaeological or historical investigations conducted for CAL FIRE. The reports were written for a widely varying audience including state and federal agencies, landowners, research archaeologists, and members of the general public. Since members of the general public are part of the audience we reach, most of the reports written in this series were prepared for general distribution. These do not disclose the precise location of archaeological sites and provide mapped locations only on vicinity maps. Locational descriptions are kept vague. Other reports containing detailed site records, location maps, and locational descriptions were prepared in two separate volumes. All confidential materials are contained in a separate volume not available to the general public. This policy ensures that confidential site locations are not disclosed to unauthorized individuals while providing information to an interested public. The series currently contains 30 reports. CAL FIRE prints a limited number of copies for immediate distribution to local universities and libraries, researchers, and other interested parties. CAL FIRE's first printing is distributed free of charge but this limited supply is quickly exhausted. Coyote Press of Salinas, California has agreed to reprint reports in the CAL FIRE Archaeological Reportsseries. To purchase a copy of these reports or to obtain a current catalogue listing the other reports and publications available, contact Coyote Press at:
