Place names are important, and often overlooked, part of our cultural environment. They act as anchors on the land and are important markers of territory. Place names store knowledge of ecology, people, stories and events of our past. Even as their origins are slowly forgotten or embellished, the names of these places are remembered. Dr. Vejby will take us on a tour through the Northbay and share with us some of the origins of the names we use today.

Dr. Mara Vejby is an archaeologist and the Founder of Locality Research and Preservation, which focuses on highlighting and preserving local history and archaeology. Her interest in people’s interactions with the past has shaped her archaeological research; from the Roman reuse of prehistoric sites in Gaul to her current work in cultural resource management. Dr. Vejby lectures as an anthropologist for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Sonoma State University.
