Alta California was divided into four jurisdictions: San Diego, Santa Barbara, Monterey, and San Francisco, each anchored with a presidio and five to six missions and civilian communities. We describe each of these jurisdictions, their resident native and emigrant populations, and their economy. The place of architectural ceramics and pottery and their associated technology is presented. Finally, a discussion of the role of Mexican craftsmen and colonial supply is presented.
