Episode 6 Synopsis

Rudy and Jacob travel to Tobermory, Ontario, where they head to the middle of Lake Huron for their first underwater archaeological expedition. While Rudy controls a sonar-equipped R.O.V. from on deck, Jacob joins a team of scuba divers to search for evidence of ancient drive lanes used to hunt caribou. Esteemed storyteller Lenore Keeshing helps put the science in context by sharing Ojibwe oral tradition.

Lisa was awarded the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Postdoctoral Fellowship to investigate submerged prehistoric archaeological sites on the Alpena-Amberley Ridge in Lake Huron. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, USA Today, the Vancouver Sun, and on the award winning weekly science program ‘Quirks and Quarks’ on CBC radio.

Exploring the Deep

Mini Hokudya Wayakapi

Unmanned, remote operated vehicles (R.O.V.s) allow us to dive deeper, longer and carry instrumentation not otherwise possible. We can accurately measure depth and distances, reach pressures that would be dangerous for a diver and take samples that are otherwise inaccessible. On this episode of Wild Archaeology, the sediment at the bottom of Lake Huron reveals something surprising.

I didn’t even know underwater archaeology existed!

The Tiniest of Fragments

Inyan Kabdeca Pi

Microdebitage consists of tiny flakes of stone, usually resulting from someone making a tool or weapon. Tiny flakes break off during the shaping of a spear point or stone tool, leaving traces for scientists to find later.  Amazingly, these very small samples tell a big story.

Listening to Lenore’s GeoMythology was really uplifting. She has linked her people’s history with all the research that has been going on for decades.
