Please join us April 12th at 7:00 pm at the Discover Portsmouth Center in Portsmouth for a presentation by Peter Leach, “Geoarchaeological Investigations along the New Hampshire Coast, Continental Shelf, and Isles of Shoals: The Role of Archaeological Data in the Assessment of Future Impacts of Sea‐level Rise”.
Mr. Leach will focus on recently collected data from New Hampshire’s coast and the Isles of Shoals, and how that information can teach us about the past. He will share explorations of Native American sites and drowned natural environments like the drowned forest at Odiorne Point. What can these past sites tell us about the future? Come find out on April 12 at 7PM. Open to the public, please bring your friends.
