Recent Research at Coastal Sites in Downeast Maine
Dr. Gabe Hrynick, University of New Brunswick
In the 1950s, Ted Stoddard of the Robert S. Peabody Museum’s Northeastern Archaeology Survey identified dozens of archaeological sites in coastal Downeast Maine. Since 2013, colleagues and I have revisited many of these sites, examined the curated collections from them, and conducted targeted excavations. Our goals are to better understand what has been lost to coastal erosion and use that information to get a better understanding of hunter-gatherer settlement and subsistence in Downeast Maine. In this talk, I review recent field and museum research from the project.
