Paleoindian Colonization of the Recently Deglaciated Great Lakes

Mobility and Technological Organization in Northern Wisconsin

Event Details

Thursday, November 14, 2019
7-8 p.m.
Wisconsin Historical Society (across from the Memorial Union)
Come hear archaeologist John M. Lambert as he presents the results of research on Late Paleoindian settlement of recently deglaciated areas south of Lake Superior. The first groups to occupy the region encountered a rapidly changing boreal forest environment with no clear modern analog. Investment in high-mobility resource procurement, tailored leather clothing, seasonal use of wetlands, and travel by watercraft helped communities thrive within the unique and challenging environment.
