Tiempo de lectura | Reading time: 2 minutos



Students and teachers of the National School of Anthropology and History in Mexico (ENAH in Spanish) are part of a project to register archaeological sites in Baja California. This also seeks to increase the protection of sites with natural and cultural resources, best known as biocultural heritage, as well as promoting the environmental value of the nature reserves.

The project began on June 19, 2017 and it aims to locate archaeological sites of the nature reserves protected by Terra Peninsular:

  • Punta Mazo and Monte Ceniza Nature Reserves, in San Quintín Bay.
  • Valle Tranquilo Nature Reserve, in El Rosario.

These nature reserves are protected by Terra Peninsular and they are certified by the Mexican government as Natural Protected Areas, in the category of Areas Voluntarily Destined for Conservation.

The project is funded by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH in Spanish), the National School of Anthropology and History in Mexico (ENAH in Spanish), JiJi Foundation and Terra Peninsular.



In order to share with the community the results obtained in this project, a free lecture will be presented “Snakes, agave, hunters and collectors: experiences and findings in Valle Tranquilo and San Quintín, Baja California”.

This lecture will be presented at:

  • San Quintín: July 11, 2017, at Molino Viejo restaurant, 6:00pm.
  • Ensenada: July 12, 2017 at the Regional Historical Museum of Ensenada, 7:30pm.
