At various times in history, residents of the Delmarva Peninsula have proposed that its Maryland and Virginia portions secede from their respective states, merging with Kent County and Sussex County, Delaware, to create the state of Delmarva.
Its combined population would be about 750,000, roughly that of Montana, or 977,511 in 2015, or 1,534,290 if New Castle County, Delaware is also included, roughly the population of Idaho, or West Virginia.
Some studies have shown that Native Americans inhabited the peninsula from about 8000–10000 BC - since the last Ice Age.
Recent research indicates that Paleo-Indians inhabited Maryland during the pre-Clovis period (before 13,000 BP).
In the spring they planted crops, which the women and children tended while the men hunted and fished.
