6. It's the preservation that surprised me.

It's not surprising that people were living there at the time. We already knew as much. There is evidence of copper mining in Michigan and Wisconsin and the larger Great Lakes region 10,000 years ago.

These canoes have significance for the Native people of the region. But I am curious about the conditions that preserved the canoes.
