The Canadian shield is the exposed part of the North American craton, one section of the earth's floating crust. Shaped somewhat like a horseshoe, or like the shields that ancient warriors used to. i do not own any of these pictures.

A striking feature of the Canadian shield is that a lot of near-surface rock is Precambrian, that is, more than million years old. Yes, there were volcanos long ago in what is now the Canadian shield, but since so much of the shield now consists of Precambrian rock, we know that nearly ALL of what was deposited there in the last million years has been eroded away. The Outline of Archaeological Traditions (OAT), compiled by Peter Peregrine with the help of a Board of Advisors, is the sampling frame for eHRAF Archaeology. Only some of these traditions are currently included in eHRAF Archaeology (see traditions included).HRAF has employed two types of sampling. The first is simple random sampling from the OAT.

Late Western Shield Culture (Précis, Chapter 25) Late Western Shield culture (née Laurel) should be viewed relative to the exceptional expanse and variety of territory an east-west line, the culture was distributed from the border of Québec, across Northern Ontario, throughout much of Manitoba and into east-central Saskatchewan, a straight line distance of more than 1, km.
The introduction reviews the Shield Archaic concept as part of archaeological research in the boreal forest of the Canadian Shield.
Chapter 2 describes Book: All Authors / Contributors: J V Wright This chapter also discusses the possible origins of the Shield Archaic and its relation to the Palaeo-Indian period.
The final chapter re. There are also a number of early radiocarbon dates from Ontario and Manitoba. This has led to the proposition that "The Shield Archaic evolved from a late Palaeo-Indian (Plano tradition) cultural base in the eastern Northwest Territories and probably the western portions of the Boreal Forest-Canadian Shield" (Wright 69).
This research outlines the cultural chronology for the preceramic period (ca. 11, - 2, years BP) along the north shore of Lake Ontario.
Substantive results regarding cultural identification, associated site distributions and use of lithic raw material are presented. The Precambrian rocks of the Canadian Shield cover 4, km 2 (1, sq mi) of Canada and the Lake Superior and Adirondack regions of the United States of America.
Except on the northeastern side, facing the Greenland Shield, the Canadian Shield is surrounded by relatively undisturbed Phanerozoic rocks which were protected by the stable Precambrian basement.
Canadian Shield groups also fought each other for goods and women, and revenge issues were also the motivation for battle. The Chipewyan peoples considered the Inuit their enemy and conflicts were often based on long-standing feuds. Canadian Shield First Nations helped each. In the south and southwest, the Abitibi greenstone belt is unconformably overlain by Paleoproterozoic rocks of the Huronian Supergroup, which forms a southward-thickening wedge of dominantly sedimentary rocks that were deposited in a rift to passive margin setting.
The Huronian Supergroup reaches a maximum thickness of ~12 km near Lake Huron. In the same period, mining operations were begun in the Klondike and the Canadian Shield. Large-scale development of hydroelectric resources helped foster industrialization and urbanization. Under the premiership of Conservative Robert L.
Borden, Canada followed Britain and entered World War I. The Canadian Shield Fun Facts It is the oldest part of the North American plate. It is the largest formation of exposed Precambrian rock in the world.
Other names for the Canadian Shield include the Precambrian Shield and the Laurentian Plateau. It is made of primarily of. The Canadian shield, Precambrian shield, makes up the bedrock geology highlighted by rocks and lakes and a boreal forest area. There are transitional areas between boreal and tundra flora.
The lower boundary of the Canadian Shield cuts across the province diagonally from the latitude 57 degrees in the north west to 54 degrees in the south east.
Three orogenies formed the Precambrian shield. The Canadian Shield is among the oldest on earth, with regions dating from to billion years.
The multitude of rivers and lakes in the entire region is caused by the watersheds of the area being so young and in a state of sorting themselves out with the added effect of post-glacial Shield was originally an area of very large, very tall mountains (ab m or 39, ft.
The Canadian Shield landscape exists in a remote northeastern corner of Alberta in the Kazan Upland and Athabasca Plain sub-regions of the Canadian Shield. The Canadian Shield region comprises only 3 percent of Alberta's lands. Some of the oldest rock on earth is exposed here, great outcroppings of Precambrian granite scoured clean by the Ice.
This Precambrian igneous rock is in a vast mass called the Canadian Shield. It was dry land ages ago when the oceans still rolled over the sites of the Appalachian and the Rocky mountains. It was uplifted to form a plateau and then carved by stream erosion.
Finally glaciers scraped it almost level. The Canadian Shield The Canadian Shield is the principal area of North America where rocks of Precambrian age (i.e., those that are more than million years old) are exposed at the surface. The shield was rifted apart between Canada and Greenland by seafloor spreading in the Labrador Sea and in Baffin Bay between 90 and 40 million years ago.
The Canadian Shield north of Lake Superior, sculpted by the glaciers Even beyond the glaciers and away from the shoreline of Lake Superior, this region is constantly being visibly reshaped – by heavy storms, and often just by water as it makes its way from higher land down to Lake Superior. Laurentia is an ancient craton which forms the geologic core of North America; it formed between and billion years ago during the Proterozoic eon.
The Canadian Shield is the largest exposure of this craton. From the Late Paleozoic to Early Mesozoic eras, North America was joined with the other modern-day continents as part of the supercontinent Pangaea, with Eurasia to its east.
The Canadian Shield region of Canada has lots of animals. Some of the animals are moose, black bears, grizzly bears, wolves, foxes, beavers, minks, martens, wolverines, lynxes, wood buffalo, woodland caribou, shrews, weasels and hares.

The Canadian Shield covers half of the country, and the dense boreal forest growing in its thin soil can seem unending after half a day, even though it is.
Maize (Zea mays) is a plant of enormous modern-day economic importance as foodstuff and alternative energy rs agree that maize was domesticated from the plant teosinte (Zea mays spp. parviglumis) in central America at least as early 9, years the Americas, maize is called corn, somewhat confusingly for the rest of the English-speaking world, where 'corn' refers to the.
Summary. Long-period magnetotelluric (MT) and geomagnetic depth sounding data (GDS) have been acquired on the Fennoscandian Shield under the framework of the B.Coastal -Preceramic Foundations of Andean Civilization. 1. In the period BC coastal groups of hunter-foragers who had until this time lived seasonally migratory lives moving between the Andean slopes (deer, camelid) and the coast (fox, rodents, sea mammals, fish.These shallow seas opened and deepened southward across a broad shelf and connected with the deepening Ouachita Trough.
The terrigenous deltaic sediments were transported into the region by the large Michigan River system, which drained eastern parts of the Canadian Shield and northern extensions of the Appalachian Mountain belt.
