Maine Coastal Shell Middens

Alice Kelly (University of Maine Orono/School of Earth and Climate Sciences) has developed an exciting research program on Maine’s shell middens — mapping, investigating, preserving them. Her work would be fascinating to students with an interest in the natural sciences and/or archaeology, and it could be a natural fit for collaborating with TEK mentors from the Wabanaki  community. Alice is already working with community organizations in Damariscotta and has made some waves in the news.  Here are some links to see what this is all about!
