Talk: The Adirondacks in 8,000 B.C.
Speaker: Maureen Folk
7 pm at the Chapman Museum
Lake George is well known for its historical significance during the French and Indian war, but Native Americans were using this land for centuries before Europeans even arrived. Several sites have been found in this region that show evidence of nomadic hunters and gatherers traversing the wilderness approximately 10,000 years ago and continuing to use those paths until colonization. Maureen will talk about some of the earliest people that inhabited this area and what they left behind.
This will be a hybrid event (in person and virtual) — more details to come.
