Dugout Canoe
Photographer: Allen C. Browne
Taken: May 15, 2017
Caption: Dugout Canoe
Additional Description: “The Woodland Peoples made dugout Canoes by slowly burning out the center of a large log. The fire was controlled by packing wet mud over the surfaces they didn't want to burn. Animal bones, shells, and stones were used to scrape away burned wood. The process was repeated until the canoe was carved into its desired shape.” - Patuxent River Park Signage.
