Russell Cave

Bridgeport, Alabama

Russell Cave National Monument ~ http://www.nps.gov/ruca

For thousands of years bands of prehistoric Indians came to the area we know today as Russell Cave. The cave provided a shelter. The surrounding forest provided food, tools, and fuel for their fires.
Occupation of the cave shelter continued from the earliest known people to inhabit the southeastern United States, until the time of European explorers. The story of the inhabitants of Russell Cave is one of adaptation and survival.

These people left behind clues to their way of life. These clues help us to have a better understanding of the people who have gone through the mists of time.
