Meadowcroft, Pennsylvania

Meadowcroft Rock Shelter is an archaeological site that has been used by humans since Paleo-Indian times.

Circa 300BC

With a history that can be only told by the rocks and still questionable it can be an uplifting experience. Could this really be the only micro-climate left during the ice ages?
