1,000-year-old projectile points and pottery found in Ontario

Published on December 10th, 2012 | by Admin


Archaeologists working on the banks of the Puce River in Ontario have found a collection of aboriginal items which date back 1,000 years.

The artifacts that initially were found were projectile heads, or arrowheads, as well as clay pottery,” said Essex County’s engineering contracts manager Peter Bziuk.

“There were fragments of pottery that date back to the late woodland period. There’s a wide range for that period, but it’s approximately 1,000 years old.”

There is a provincially mandated process that is part of the environmental assessment to ensure that archeologically significant discoveries are preserved.
