  Paul Mickey Science Series: The Grand Island Archaeology: Twelve Years of Research on Lake Superior's South Shore   

Paul Mickey Science Series: The Grand Island Archaeology: Twelve Years of Research on Lake Superior's South Shore

  • Location: ISM Research & Collections Center, Springfield
  • Date: Wednesday, March 06, 2013, 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Please note date change: Lecture has been changed from March 13 to March 6 due to the speakers schedule.

Presented by Dr. James Skibo, Illinois State University

Grand Island is the largest island on the south shore of Lake Superior. Located just off shore from the small community of Munising, Michigan, the island has been continuously occupied from 2,000 B.C. to the present and has played a key role in both the prehistory and history of the region. The Grand Island Archaeological Research Project is a cooperative program between Illinois State University and the Hiawatha National Forest as archaeologists investigate sites that cover the entire human history of Grand Island in order to understand the specific activities of the people who lived and used the resources of the island. For the first time, the focus during the 2012 field season was the western side of the island where a multi-component site (Archaic through Woodland Periods) was investigated.
