Long before Revolutionary War Gen. William R. Davie (as the legend goes) sat under a poplar tree and decided this was where the University should be built, indigenous people lived here – hunting, gathering, trading. Here on campus, archaeologists have found artifacts including stone spear points alongside numerous fragments of broken cooking pots. (UNC.edu)
