Sears Island Archaeology Walk


Community Happenings
Aug 12, 2017
9:30 AM - 11:00 AM

Paul Bock leads “Archaeology of Sears Island and Upper Penobscot Bay: A Window Through Deep Time,” a free walk focusing on some of the Native American sites that have been excavated in the area, from the Archaic Period through the Ceramic Period and into the Euro-Contact Period. Bring any artifacts found on Sears Island for identification, as surface finds can be an important tool to help identify new archaeological sites. Park along the causeway and meet at the kiosk by 9:30 a.m. Wear appropriatedfootwear and clothing to protect against ticks and weather. Bring water, a snack, and insect repellent. No pets. In the event of steady rain, the program will be cancelled. For more information and updates, visit friendsofsearsisland.org, facebook.com/friendsofsearsisland or call Ashley at 207-975-3878.
