Welcome to the bilingual webpage for Baja California anthropology!

For visitors unfamiliar with the subject, we offer brief "Orientations" to the region's geography, prehistoric archaeology, cultural anthropology, aboriginal languages, physical anthropology, and history.

Researchers will find a set of tools, including databases and an annotated bibliography.

This webpage was developed in 2002 by an multinational group of anthropologists seeking to foster the development of the discipline in Baja California, promote closer communication and cooperation between researchers, disseminate accurate information, and encourage an appreciation of and protection for the peninsula's unique cultural heritage.
