Join us at Mission San Luis for the third presentation in our 2019-2020 Series on “Colonial Sounds: The Influence of Native and Spanish Music on America.”
Archaeologist Jerry Lee has excavated, studied and cared for artifacts on the Mission San Luis historic site for 30 years. Among the many interesting 17th century colonial items recovered from the site were bells, an iconic symbol of the Mission Period. From larger bells that tolled for celebrations or as warnings, to smaller bells that were primarily used as trade items, Mr. Lee will provide a unique archaeological perspective on these essential artifacts of life at Mission San Luis.
Don’t miss the rest of our great line-up of speakers for this First Thursday* series through April 2020! Save these upcoming dates: January 9 (*second Thursday), February 6, March 5 and April 2.
