That's all for now. Take care and until next well.

My BSA guide training crew found clay pot shards in cliff breakdown caves round Lows Lake while exploring the area around about 1992. An archeological team from the NY state museum came to investigate and determined from the designs on them that they were from the Iroquois era. Those pieces are now protected in the NYS museum.

When I was in 7th grade in Lowville, the social studies teacher, Arthur Einhorn, was crazy nuts over native NY Indian culture. The class spent most of that year studying what he knew and little else.
