Quick Reference


Late Archaic Stage woodland‐dwelling hunter‐gatherer cultures living mainly around the northeastern shores of the Great Lakes and the St Lawrence River in North America in the period c.3200 to 1000 bc. Their subsistence economy focused on the exploitation of heavy fish runs and seal colonies, although other animals and plants were used as well. These communities had great seasonal movement, mainly living in small bands moving about within well‐defined territories, but coming together at defined base camps from time to time. There are two well‐defined variants of the Lake Forest Tradition: the Old Copper Culture and the Laurentian.
