Welcome to the
Top Menu for Site
First time here? The Overview page explains who the Diggers
were (are) and the intent of this site. The What's
New page highlights additions to this web so returning visitors might
check there first. The old Digger
Forum Discussion Group was archived. Now many of the participants have moved
on to various social media (a concept barely understood at the time) but the
archivist here maintains a
WordPress blog. Feel free to check
The links on the left border show the main sections of the Digger
Archives. A one-page summary of the critical texts in the archive (including street
sheets, broadsides, manifestos, posters, videos, interviews, histories) is
located here: Highlights of the Digger Archive.
The Digger Thesis
The 1960s Counterculture was a pebble in a pond with ripples spreading
outward into the larger society. The San Francisco Diggers at the
center of that wave embodied the cultural changes
still felt and seen today worldwide.

Note on Content Edits:
This web first emerged in 1993 and the content
changes at varying rates depending on how much time the Archivist can devote
to the coding.
