Bradbury Brook

Bradbury Brook is an archeological procurement area (21ML42), located a few miles south of Mille Lacs Lake in east central Minnesota. Here Late Paleoindian inhabitants gathered cobbles of siltstone from a streambed or directly from glacial drift. A partially intact stone workshop at this site was dated to 7212 +/- 75 BCE (before common era). The siltstone was used to produce a variety of tools, including a stemmed point, other bifaces, keeled scrapers, blades and chipped stone adzes. The workshop also contained several fragmented anvilstones and an abundant sample of hammerstones of various sizes[1]

Archaeologists working at the site found more than 125,000 artifacts, including stone tools, dating to 7212 BCE, making it the earliest dated excavated site in Minnesota.[2][3]
