Indigenous populations left traces in the area, even if they did not settle here permanently. They used it as a temporary rest area during their travels on the rivers. The objects presented here are the types of Indigenous artefacts found during archaeological digs. On the right-hand side of the photograph, there is the tip of a projectile and a pipe fragment. Pottery shards appear next to them. These artefacts are probably from the Middle Woodland period, between 200 B.C. and 200 A.D. It is used to identify a specific time in the history of the peoples of precolonial North America.
