The Middle Archaic People
The Middle Archaic people of North America witnessed a warming climate and began establishing longer lasting settlements that were mostly found along major water ways. There’s evidence of ceremonial rituals, human and dog burials, the harvesting of crops, trash pits, and stoned lined fire-pits
The tool techniques used during this time went on to be used into the Late Archaic period. Mortars and pestles, grooved axes, spear thrower weights, and side notched points are all apparent.
