Divers Retrieve Prehistoric Wood from Lake Huron

Two professors from our University of Michigan have found a piece of wood at the bottom of Lake Huron. Using carbon dating, they found it to be 8,900 years old. Professor O'Shea and Meadow have been diving at the bottom of this lake searching for clues about the PaleoIndian hunters who may have lived there many years ago. This piece of wood brings up points about how the land went under water since they found it i between two rocks, they believe this shift may have been fast and smooth. However, they are still looking for clues under the water to further this idea. To learn more about this discovery see:
