St. George Historical Society to hear from archeologist
ST. GEORGE — Bruce Bourque, chief archeologist and curator of ethnography at the Maine State Museum, will present a program on Maine’s Native Americans at the St. George Historical Society meeting Thursday, Aug. 30 at 7:30 p.m. at the St. George Grange Hall, Wiley’s Corner Road.
Bourque has been engaged in archaeological research in Maine since 1969, and is director of the Fox Island Archaeological Project. The goal of the project is to reconstruct the prehistoric cultural and environmental history of the Penobscot Bay region. More than 400 archaeological sites have been surveyed.
In addition to these activities, Bourque is senior lecturer in anthropology at Bates College.
Bourque has kindly assented to a request to share his expertise and identify and explain any Indian artifacts that people may have; so bring them along.
There will be a potluck supper at 6:30 p.m. Bring something to share if you can. Everyone is invited to either or both the supper and meeting. A collection will be taken to pay for the use of the hall.
For more information call James Skoglund at 372-8893.
