GLASSOW, Michael A. (b. 1940), professor of archaeology at the University of California Santa Barbara. Since the early 1970s, Glassow has conducted extensive archaeological surveys and research on the northern Channel Islands, particularly on Santa Cruz Island. His research is focused on a period of prehistory of the Santa Barbara Channel region between 7,000 and 5,000 years ago. He is interested in how populations adapted to changing environmental conditions during this period, particularly with regard to their subsistence practices and settlement patterns.
