‘U’ researchers discover caribou hunting structures in Lake Huron

Michigan Daily – University researchers recently announced the groundbreaking discovery of archaeological remains under the surface of Lake Huron — the first such find on the bottom of the Great Lakes. The researchers found caribou hunting structures and camps preserved 100 feet deep in a location 100 miles wide in Lake Huron. John O’Shea, curator of Great Lakes Archaeology in the Museum of Anthropology and a professor in the Department of Anthropology, said the area — which spreads from Point Clark, Ontario to Presque Isle, Mich. — was dry land 10,000 years ago. “It would have been a place where early hunters would have been occupying and where you would have had caribou migrating,” O’Shea said.
