Default Possible lost world found in Lake Huron

The recovery of a mysterious wooden pole at the bottom of Lake Huron is fuelling excitement among U.S. and Canadian researchers that they have found more evidence of a "lost world" of North American caribou hunters from nearly 10,000 years ago.

The scientists believe that these prehistoric aboriginal people - who would have been among the earliest inhabitants of the continent - had a "kill site" along a ridge straddling the present-day U.S.-Canada border that was eventually submerged by rising waters when the glaciers melted at the end of the last Ice Age.

Now drowned under about 35 metres of water in Lake Huron, the Alpena-Amberley Ridge is named for the Michigan and Ontario towns that respectively mark the western and eastern ends of the 160-kilometre-long and 16-kilometre-wide feature. The theory that the ridge was an ancient hunting ground was first announced in 2009 after the discovery of lake-bottom rock features that appeared to have been arranged by human hands to herd migrating caribou into narrow corridors ideal for spear hunting.

These "drive lanes" are still used by some Inuit hunters in Northern Canada to funnel caribou and make hunting them easier. Other groups of boulders mapped by the Lake Huron researchers are thought to have been "blinds" meant to conceal hunters before they sprang out to attack passing caribou.

Just imagine what could be found if all the lakes, seas and oceans could be drained.

We might not want to know.

I'm sure there are some scary things living down there too.
