The waterways of the North Bay have played a central part in the movement of peoples and in the way the history of the region has unfolded. In the second part of this two-part lecture we will follow the rivers’ winding histories as increasing amounts of trade and agriculture shape their banks. We will then attempt to bridge the gap between the past and the present, by taking a brief look at the region from the perspective of these waterways now.

Dr. Mara Vejby is an archaeologist and the founder of Locality Research and Preservation. She currently works as an analyst for the Board of Supervisors in Santa Clara County. Dr. Vejby’s interest in how people interact with the past has shaped her research in Europe and California, and it continues to influence her work to preserve our local history and archaeology.

Part one of the lecture series, “How Waterways Wrote Our History: The North Bay up to the 1800s,” takes place on Saturday, July 7.
