Archaeology professor, Dr. Nathan Hamilton, from the Geography-Anthropology program at the University of Southern Maine Muskie School will lead a project along the coast of Cumberland and on Casco Bay islands to assess and document coastal middens impacted by rising sea levels and climate change. This project is funded through a grant from The Island Institute. Among others, Professor Hamilton will be joined by Thomas Bennett, a historian and director of Prince Memorial Library and USM student Grayson Jones on the project.
