Wabanaki History in Gouldsboro—An Archaeological Perspective

Join the Abbe Museum's Director of Collections & Research, Julia Gray, at the Old Town House Museum as she talks about what we can learn about Wabanaki history in the Gouldsboro area through the investigation of archaeological sites, including the Tranquility Farm and Taft Point sites. What can we learn from sites and artifacts? How does this knowledge fit in with other ways of learning about Wabanaki history, such as oral traditions, stories, Wabanaki place names, anthropology, climate science? And what does all of this tell us about life in what is now Gouldsboro over thousands of years of Wabanaki history?

This event is free and open to the public and will be hosted at the Old Town House Museum, presented by the Gouldsboro Historical Society.
