Sponsored by: Maine Archaeological Society; Viles Arboretum
Arthur Spiess of MHPC will kick things off with a talk concerning the significance of Maine’s varied archaeology, recording archaeological sites and the contributions of Maine’s avocational archaeologists. If you have an artifact collection, please bring it along to share. We will have tables set up for people to lay out artifacts including collections provided by MHPC representing varied pre- and postcontact sites. The lectures (technology in the archaeological field) will be followed by an indoor flint knapping demonstration. Lunch can be spent exploring the Arboretum (weather permitting) and after lunch we will gather to see, talk, and learn about the deep cultural and historical significance of the collections.
