Museum collections are often overlooked by archaeologists for the more exciting work of excavating "new" information. However, museum collections can provide a wealth of information on the ancient history of sites, landscapes, or regions. Malcolm Rogers excavated and collected artifacts from thirty-two sites on San Nicolas Island in 1930 that are now curated at the San Diego Museum of Man. This project cataloged the collection as well as correlated artifact locations to known sites on the island and Malcolm Rogers' field notes. An in-depth look at settlement patterns, prehistoric material culture, and historical artifacts highlights the research potential of this extensive collection for current researchers.
