Adventures In History
Cultural Resource Staff, Isle Royale National Park

Island visitation has been dated to at least 4,500 years before the present, although recent sediment coring suggests much earlier use by indigenous cultures. Island life was quite varied and spanned a broad range of activities including fishing, hunting, and copper extraction.  Since ancient times, the island has witnessed numerous historic endeavors such as commercial fishing, copper mining, trapping, and recreation. Join park cultural resource staff as they summarize findings related to this summer’s queue of archaeological survey and testing.
