This report presents the thematic landscape approach that will be taken to prepare the regional prehistoric context for the San Diego Subregion of the Southern Coast Archeological Region SDSSCAR. The goal of this project was to research and develop a regional, archeologically based, historic context that will facilitate a programmatic approach to determining National Register of Historic Places NRHP eligibility for archeological sites at a subset of Navy Region Southwest and Marine Corps installations. The cultural resource research questions to be addressed by this project are those common to preprotohistoric archeological sites of the SDSSCAR. This work identified gaps in the current body of knowledge, and serves as a foundation for addressing these deficiencies and as a resource to aid in determining NRHP significance, assessing effects, and creating innovative managementtreatment plans at the regional level. The study identified and evaluated a variety of classes of archeological sites and other types of cultural resources that characterize distinct landscapes in the SDSSCAR. The outlined approach will significantly decrease the number of individual, case-by-case undertakings, facilitate a more effective management process, and contribute to a better collective understanding of the precontact prior to AD 1769 Native American regional perspective.
