Maxwell Calls Tools Indication
Of Ancient Eskimo Ancestor

Flint tools found off the north-
west coast of Greenland have in-
dicated the presence of the an-
cient Dorset man, the fore-runner
of the modern central Eskimo.
This information was disclosed'
by Prof. Moreau S. Maxwell, of
the anthropology department at
Michigan State University, who
spoke here on behalf of the Ann
Arbor Society of the Archaeologi-
cal Institute of America.
Professor Maxwell has explored
the area around Lake Hazen on

Ellesmere Island, where he found
these remnants of past life.
Dorset Evidence

that these remnants were caused
by the Dorsets because of the type
of tools and house foundations

who migrated to North America

out, by the finding of numerous
primitive spears and harpoons
used in their unique Maupoc
method of hunting in which he
hypothesized that the Dorset

eight hours in 40 degree below
zero temperatures waiting for the
seal to s come up through his
breathing hole for air, and then
would spear him.
Whoever the inhabitants of the
area, he concluded they must have
been present when the tempera-
tures were more moderate, leaving

gell Hall.
The talk is being sponsored by
