Allumette Island and Morrison Island

By far the two most important sites of the Middle Archaic Period in northeastern North America are those found at Allumette Island and Morrison Island by Clyde Kennedy, an avid amateur archaeologist from Chalk River.  They are especially notable for the very significant quantities of Lake Superior native copper objects found there.
