Shoals Archaeology exhibit: Only a few more days to go!

Under the Isles of Shoals, J. Dennis RobinsonOnly a few more days to go to see the “Under the Isles of Shoals” exhibit at Discover Portsmouth in downtown Portsmouth, NH.

If you miss the exhibit, be sure to stop in and pick up a copy of J. Dennis Robinson‘s great book, Under the Isles of Shoals, designed and produced by Grace Peirce of Great Life Press for Portsmouth Marine Society.

The book is available at the Discover Portsmouth museum shop, and can be ordered from Portsmouth Historical Society, where you can also find many other fine books on the history of the maritime region of the Piscataqua River, which runs between New Hampshire and Maine.

The Under the Isles of Shoals book has over 200 full color photos and maps, illustrating the well-written account of the archaeology dig now in progress on Smuttynose Island off the coast of New Hampshire and Maine. Thousands of artifacts are being uncovered.

Smuttynose“In just four years of an ongoing “dig” at the Isles of Shoals, Nathan Hamilton and his archaeology students have unearthed 250,000 artifacts. Those bones, stones, and fragments of human occupation tell volumes about life on a rock. And tiny buried shells may reveal secrets of climate change.” — J. Dennis Robinson.
