Dresden Falls Archaeology Dig Site Needs Volunteers
Dresden Falls is considered the most important prehistoric site in Maine and the Maine Historic Preservation Commission is looking for volunteers to help dig.
Starting October 1 there will be a two week dig of the historic site which features evidence of a fishing camp from 4,000-9,000 years ago as well as a Revolutionary War structure.
Volunteers are welcome, even if you have no experience, to remove sod and plow zone soil. Experienced volunteers only, are requested by MHPC for helping with work below the plow zone.

Morning sessions run from 8 a.m. to noon and afternoon sessions are from 12:30-4:30 p.m. To schedule and time slot, directions to dig location and more information, contact Tom Walling at 666-5837.
