Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0660178354, Paperback)

The first people who came to southern Ontario, almost 11,000 years ago, encountered a landscape much different from that of today. The great ice sheets were melting, feeding lakes that flooded many areas now dry. Conifers dominated the open woodland, and animals including the mastodon, caribou, and Arctic fox inhabited the area.

Known to archaeologists as Paleo-Indians, these early residents were among the most expert stone tool makers known anywhere. They returned seasonally to the Parkhill site, on the shore of a glacial lake next to a long narrow estuary, to intercept migrating caribou. Parkhill eventually became a very large site with several distinct activity areas. This volume provides a detailed description and analysis of all aspects of this important archaeological locality.
