Stone Tools Unearthed in Quebec
Monday, August 26, 2013
QUEBEC, CANADA—Artifacts estimated to be between 4,000 and 7,000 years old have been found on Waskaganish territory in northern Quebec, in an area that the local Cree know as a traditional fishing site. The rough-looking stone blades and arrowheads had been ground into shape. Further excavations may reveal if the land was used as a campsite. “It’s pretty exciting, because we don’t have a lot of sites in Quebec that are that old, if it’s as much as 7,000 years,” said James Chism of the Waskaganish Cultural Institute.
