UC Santa Barbara professor of anthropology Lynn Gamble and her students were recently presented with a rare opportunity: Excavate a Chumash Indian site that might be the location of the original Santa Barbara. Under Gamble's supervision, her students dug three excavation units underneath a floor in the Veteran's Administration building near downtown Santa Barbara, unearthing items, and mapping their locations. Others picked through the excavated items, sifting and classifying them.

The dig was a requirement for a proposed elevator project to be constructed at that spot.

The fate of the elevator project depends on analysis of the excavation, and on consultation with Unzueta and Ygnacio-Desoto. If certain items were unearthed —— for example, human remains, which might indicate the presence of a historic, sacred gravesite —— the dig and the construction would have to take another direction, or stop altogether.

Additionally, the could lead to further exploration of the site, which is at the foot of Burton Mound, an archaeologically rich site excavated in the s.

While the descendents of the inhabitants of Syuxtun have the closest ties to the excavation, the research, in Gamble's opinion, is ificant to all people in the area, as well as to anyone living in the state. Sonia Fernandez.
