Esther, Alberta Artifacts.
Many Artifacts have been in the Esther, Alberta area over the years. First Nations people traveling through the area left behind a puzzle which has been a challenge to Archeologists for many years. One Artifact that was left behind is located North West of Esther a few miles, it is a human effigy consisting of stones placed upon the ground in the shape of a stickman, it is approximately 8 ft in length. Nearby there are also clearly defined tent rings which are also made of rocks. These vary in sizes, but are generally from two to seven meters in diameter, they were used to hold down the edges of the hides which made up the teepees.
