Los Angeles Magazine likes ARCHAEOLOGY

This September, the city of Los Angeles will turn 232 years old. To mark the occasion, Los Angeles Magazine featured an artifact-rich photo essay drawn from an exhibit at the city’s Natural History Museum. In her Editor’s Buzz section, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Mary Melton wrote, “Among the many periodicals that land in my mailbox, Archaeology magazine may offer the most inspiration.

The online version, updating daily with many items selected by readers, can be viewed at The History of Los Angeles as Told Through 232 Objects.
