Native American hearths found in New Jersey

A large number of Native American hearths, dating as far back as 500.B.C. have been found in Ewing, New Jersey.

Other artifacts found so far include little chips of stone that the Native Americans might have used to create a tool, such as an arrowhead.

“Many of the artifacts would just be a piece of stone to a layman, but information about the technology being employed by Native Americans to make their tools tells us about their ways of life,” Lawrence said.

About 10 percent of the artifacts are tools, including projectile points, pottery, markers used for drawings, kemp materials and hammer stones, Lawrence said.
