Abstract : This report details and discusses an archaeological data recovery program conducted for the Corps of Engineers within a portion of the lower San Luis Rey River in northern San Diego Country. A limited subsurface testing program was conducted to assess the significance of cultural resources within a proposed dredging and channel improvement project. The archaeological excavation was carried out on seven previously recorded sites. A majority of the prehistoric cultural remains can be associated with Luiseno maintenance of large camps and rancherias along the banks of the San Luis Rey River. Nearby adobes have been identified as remnants of the late Mexican/early American period, circa 1850-1880.
