An exhibit case on Archaic Hunters and Gatherers of the Northeast displays tools and other materials left by small bands of seminomadic hunting, fishing and food-collecting peoples, who inhabited the northeastern United States for some 3000 years beginning about 3500 B.C. The exhibit is on display in the North American Archeology Exhibit, which opened in November 1962, in the National Museum of Natural History.
