Hi All - Due to the enormous amount of information I have gathered and plan to post over the coming months, I have created a new #HistoryTO Series Page (immediately below this page) - I will be creating separate Subpages for various periods of time - This page will still be relevant until the posts on the new page and subpages catch up with the content posted on this page - Then this page will be archived or deleted

It is believed that the first settlers in the Southern Ontario area were the Palaeo-Indians who lived in the area from 10,000 to 7,000 BC - Many of them settled along the banks of the Humber River (wikipedia) – “Archeologists think that the Paleo Indians, sometimes referred to as the Clovis People, were among the first to inhabit the Americas - This ancient tribe appeared in our continent at the end of the last Ice Age, entering the continent from Asia - Their name, Paleo, actually comes from the Greek word “palaios,” meaning ancient - They inhabited the southwestern United States and northern Mexico between 10,000 and 40,000 years” ago – indiansdotorg
