The Galick site, located at the southern terminus of Lake Champlain, has long been identified as a potentially critical context for examining the precontact occupation and ecology of the southern Lake Champlain basin. Both its position at the confluence of local and interregional transportation networks and its setting within an area of remarkable biological diversity highlight the Galick site's potential importance to foragers and early farmers operating along the southern shores of Lake Champlain. In 2016, the South Champlain Historical Ecology Project conducted the first intensive archaeological investigations at the Galick site and began delineating what appears to be a major multicomponent campsite. This poster presents the initial results of 2016 research and provides an early outlook on the Galick site's potential significance within the larger Lake Champlain basin.
