The land was of course very different back then and consisted mainly of spruce forests and tundra. During this period, Niagara region was inhabited by people called the Clovis People. The nomadic people here camped along the shore line of the old Lake Erie and lived quite a simple life. Their dwellings were made of raw material that they could find on the earth and they survived on natural fruits and vegetables that they could lay their hands on.
