Glen Mayer Culture

Quick Reference


Early Iroquois cultural grouping in southwestern Ontario after about ad 1000, representing a continuation of the middle Woodland hunter‐gatherer lifestyles with the addition of maize agriculture.

Settlements appear to have been seasonal, with summer camps related to maize growing and fishing, while for the rest of the year communities dispersed to hunt. The summer villages were occupied by communities of between 100 and 400 people, the various families living in multi‐family dwellings with hearths arranged down the centre.
