Analyzes confirmed that the Aboriginal camp that was discovered during construction of Highway 8 in Fredericton, in the Marysville area, is one of the oldest sites of human occupation in the Northeastern part of North America.

The site is located on what was once the shoreline of a large glacial lake in central New Brunswick at the end of the last ice age. Archaeological excavations have uncovered evidence of the presence of a small indigenous camp, where thousands of fragments of stone tools and fragments of charcoal and animal bones have been found.
