Traces of Our Oldest Ancestors

Dr. Jonathan Lothrop is curator of archaeology at the New York State Museum and opened the 11th Annual Algonquin People's Seminar this past Saturday with his presentation. He showed how the location of the points indicate how the Northeast was populated as the glaciers retreated beginning 13,000 B.C.
