Archaeological Investigations in the Soldiers' Barracks Complex of Mission San Antonio De Padua 1978-1981

Jack S. Williams


This report concerns the continuing program of archaeological research being conducted at Mission San Antonio near Jolon, California. Mission San Antonio was established in 1771 as a part of the Spanish attempt to secure the region from foreigners, particularly the Russians who were expanding southward along the Pacific Coast at that time. Between 1771 and 1820 the mission was guarded by a regular force of less than five men sent from the Presidio of Monterey.
