Jennifer A. Lucido, MA, is an alumna of the CSUMB Social & Behavioral Sciences major with a concentration in Archaeology. She completed here Master of Arts in the Cultural Resources Management Program at Sonoma State University. Her master's thesis reviewed the documentary and archaeological records of the Royal Presidio of San Carlos de Monterey. In her thesis, Lucido demonstrated that the colonial landscape of the Presidio of Monterey was formed through a diverse array of physical and cultural processes during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. She has published a number of academic papers on the Presidio, including "Flora, Flora, and Food: Changing Dietary Patterns at the Spanish Royal Presidio of Monterey, 1770-1848" (with Emily M. Smith and Scott E. Lydon, 2017), “A Bastion Too Far: The Underdevelopment of the Royal Presidio of Monterey, 1770-1840” (2015), “‘Heroes in these new lands’: Evolving Colonial Identities at the Spanish Royal Presidio of Monterey” (2014), and “Decoding the Bones: Spanish Colonial Butchering Practices at the Royal Presidio of Monterey” (2013) and is second author in a recent paper with Dr. Ruben G. Mendoza dealing with Spanish cultural origins of mission architecture in California. Jennifer’s scholarly contributions in “furthering the preservation and protection of the California Missions” were acknowledged by the California Mission Curators and Directors Conference with the granting of the Father Fermín Francisco de Lasuén Award for 2014.
