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

“The history of Toronto begins approximately 12,500 years ago, when the Laurentide Ice Sheet, a continental glacier that covered northeastern North America, retreated from the area of present-day Toronto - Soon afterward small groups of Indigenous people moved into the area to hunt animals such as caribou - Archaeological finds in the area have included artifacts of First Nations dating back several thousand years” – wikipedia - @HistoryTO3 #HistoryTO #TorontoHistory #FirstNations #LaurenTideIceSheet #UrbanGeology
