5000 YEAR OLD TRACES OF THE MOST ANCIENT PEOPLE IN NUNAVUT
PI/KHS teams have been looking for traces of the earliest people in Nunavut. On Kiillinngujaq (the Kent Peninsula), south of Cambridge Bay, they have found isolated tent rings on high, ancient beach ridges that date to as much as 5,000 years ago. These are traces of the small, scattered groups of pioneering ancestors who travelled from Alaska to this new and empty land.
