Wallace 1 Eric Wallace Anthropology 355 Dr. Behm Site Summary No. 2 4 March 2007 Dwyer Rockshelter Since the beginning of time, humans have needed two major things, food and shelter. Early humans used many different structures for shelter. The one type of shelter many people associate with early humans is the cave, or naturally occurring rock formations. Many of these stone shelters still exist. Some of the structures can ever be found here in Wisconsin. One of the more notable rockshelters is the Dwyer Rockshelter located in Jackson County. The Dwyer Rockshelter is located in the northwestern quarter of Jackson County, Wisconsin. The Rockshelter is located on the Silver Mound site. According to Jeffery A. Behm, an archaeologist, Silver Mound was a mine site that produced Hixton Silicified Sandstone. This sandstone was used to produce tools and projectile points (Behm 36). Silver Mound was used by many people over thousands of years. These people would often time, make numerous journeys to Silver Mound throughout their lives.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
