Stone Age Man in Door County  

Title: Stone Age Man in Door County
Location: Heritage Village at Big Creek in the Collins Center
Description: Once thought to be covered by glacial ice, we now know that ancient Paleolithic people lived in Door County at least 10600 years before present time. The unique stone projectile points they crafted from non-local chert stone material identify these hunter-gathers as Clovis culture, some of the oldest known inhabitants in North American.
Where did these people come from, what drew them to the Sturgeon Bay area and what did the area look like thousands of years ago at the end of the last ice age? Darrel Cardy will examine these questions and report on recent anthropological studies which may shed new light on these mysteries. Mr. Cardy is a Sturgeon Bay Native and the land upon which the Paleolithic Camp is located is on land owned by his family. The camp is on the State and Federal Historic sites.
