Prehistoric campsite found in Minnesota

To the 1950s collection already at the Science Museum, they added stone flakes — evidence of tool making — and projectile points, more commonly known as arrowheads. They also found bits of pottery that, based on its composition, came from sometime between 800 and 1400 A.D.
One thing that they didn’t find, however, was evidence of permanent housing.
That leads Fleming and other archeologists to believe that the Spring Lake area may have been more of a temporary campsite than a village.
But the area is large, and there are more places to explore. It would make sense to eventually find housing, said State Archeologist Scott Anfinson, because there are burial mounds at another site near the lake.
