EL CENTRO — This past Monday marked the season’s first event at the Imperial Valley Desert Museum. And this event kicked off our programming for International Archeology Month. The theme of this first event was Ancient Foodways, which also served as a field trip associated with a History 586: Food and Famine class, taught by Neal V. Hitch. Students had the opportunity for a hands-on investigation of lithic tools used over the last 10,000 years in the Valley — many of which were collected and recorded by former students with the Imperial Valley College Archaeological Field School in the 1970s.
