We have much to learn about the Native Americans who lived here for at least 10,000 years before the arrival of European colonists. One way to do so is through a study of the tools and weapons they used. When you visit prehistoric collections, look for some of these items.
REMEMBER if you discover any human remains or artifacts -- DO NOT touch or move them. Archeologists get a great deal of information from where an object is located and how it is positioned. Moving the object, even slightly, can destroy valuable clues that may solve an intriguing mystery.
