Shellmounds

Michael Terner sent us this medallion map from Southern California

… a “medallion map” that was placed on a pedestrian bridge that crosses a small tributary of the San Francisco Bay in San Mateo, CA (where my mother lives). The medallion shows the historic location of Seashell Mounds left by the Native Americans who previously inhabited this part of California; and many of the mounds were found along this creek. The first pic is of the map in its context, which we encountered on a shoreline walk; the second pic is a closeup of the somewhat interesting title of the map.

A bit of context to shellmounds, if you are interested.
