Archaeological and Historical Sites

In and Around the San Fernando Valley

Mission San Fernando Ruins

Although the “built environment” now occupies much of the San Fernando Valley, the valley is still host to a few extant Native American rock art sites and village sites, as well as numerous structures dating from the Spanish, Mexican, and early American periods.

This presentation includes Al’s personal selection of what he feels are the most interesting prehistoric and historic sites in the valley.  Anyone can visit and see these sites for themselves.

Our speaker for this program is Al Knight.  Al has over 40 years  experience in archaeological, anthropological, and historic fieldwork, research, and writing. He has lived in the San Fernando Valley for most of his life and received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Anthropology in 1983 from  UC Santa Barbara. In 1996 he was recognized as a Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History Anthropology Department Research Associate. Al has participated in over 250 projects in Southern California and is the author of numerous published and unpublished reports.
