Insights into Ancient Coastal Migration: The Evidence for Arlington Springs and Molecular Anthropology 
Dr. John Johnson, Curator of Anthropology at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History since 1986 will present current findings that shed new light on the ancient costal migrations that contributed to the peopling of the Americas. The discipline of molecular anthropology and radiocarbon dating produce surprising evidence that “the Arlington Springs Man,” discovered in 1959 on Santa Rosa Island represent the oldest securely dated human skeletal remains in the Americas. Join the Santa Fe Archaeological Society for a fascinating evening with Dr. Johnson and the very special Paleoindian presence on the Channel Islands.
