Have you ever heard of ORA 83?
This is from the Bolsa Chica Land Trust website: “One of the most unique and significant archaeological sites in coastal Southern California lies within the Bolsa Chica. Known as ORA 83, this site contains evidence of an 8,000-year-old village site and burial ground on the grassland mesa, now proposed for a residential tract.” As you may know, that’s where the Brightwater housing complex is being developed.
More from the site: “It is the last remaining Early Holocene coastal village in Orange County, California. At least 25 known burial sites are within ORA 83. The precious nature of this site is even more profound with the loss of a second nearby site for construction of housing units. Over 1,000 ‘cogged’ stones have been found on the Bolsa Chica Mesa, possibly a manufacturing site of these mysterious artifacts.”
