Travel back in time — approximately 12,000 years — with the Clovis Caribou Hunters, in a new exhibit coming to the Museum of Northern B.C. in the new year.
The exhibit is coming to Prince Rupert from Quebec’s Sherbrooke Nature and Science Museum.
Visitors to the museum will learn how the Clovis people lived on the Megantic tundra as the glaciers retreated, becoming some of the first humans to inhabit eastern Canada as they ventured further north to hunt the roaming and plentiful caribou.
The Clovis people left marks of their journety with stone tools and fluted points, which has allowed archeologists to reconstruct their lifestyle.
The exhibit is hands-on with artifacts, such as tools and a caribou pelt shelter. Dig into some history with an archaeological excavation and meet the students and scientists who helped bring the culture of the Clovis back to life.
Families are welcome, and the exhibit will run from late Jan. until April 2018.
