The Uwharrie Mountains and Yadkin/Pee Dee River System have attracted people to settle here for thousands of years. This area has been referred to as “North Carolina’s Cradle of Civilization” because of its many pre-historic archaeological sites. Morrow Mountain State Park will be offering a Powerpoint presentation on the area’s first peoples and archaeological significance. It will be followed by demonstrations of Native American skills including: flintknapping, firemaking, and the use of an atlatl.
