Grand Island is the largest island on the south shore of Lake Superior, located just offshore from Michigan.  Before archaeology began there a little over a decade ago, little was known about a site that has been continuously occupied dating back to two thousand B.C.
Dr. Jim Skibo has led the work that has discovered tools, pottery and evidence of using heated rocks to boil or bake food.
He’ll talk about the project during tomorrow night’s Illinois State Museum Science Series Lecture.  But first, he gave us background about the site and work being done…

Wednesday’s lecture will take place at 7 p.m. at the State Museum’s Research and Collections Center, 1011 E. Ash St. in Springfield.  It’s free to attend.
