Harbour Mitchell works at an archaeological site in Thomaston.

Thomaston — The Thomaston Historical Society and the General Henry Knox Museum welcome Harbour Mitchell for a program at Watts Hall, 174 Main St., Tuesday, Sept. 11, at 7:30 p.m., with socializing for half an hour beforehand.

Mitchell will talk about the archaeological testing he performed over a period of two years in a large field between Thatcher Street and the railroad tracks in Thomaston, behind the Lyman-Morse Boatyard and behind where Fort St. Georges and Montpelier had been. He will also present the results and conclusions of the work, and review the initial findings from 2018's expanded archaeological excavations.

Mitchell has been conducting archaeological explorations throughout New England and especially Maine for several decades. In recent years his focus has been on the world of Euro-American civilian development of the frontier in the late 18th and very early 19th centuries.
