VIRTUAL - Unearthing History: Hunting Techniques of the Paleo-Indian

April 20, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 pm EDT

This is an online event.

Unearthing History: Hunting Techniques of the Paleo-Indian – Avon Historical Society – NHAS
Dr. Richard Boisvert, NH State Archaeologist, Retired
Hunting was a centerpiece of Paleoindian life. In the Northeast, researchers agree that caribou was the top priority game animal. These animals were essential for not only food but also clothing and shelter. As simple as this sounds, documenting caribou hunting and understanding how it was integrated with social organization and how people dispersed over the landscape is quite complex with many unanswered questions. This presentation explores this issue and makes a case for a model of Paleoindian caribou hunting in Northern New England.
