The Passadumkeag Sequence (1975)
Renewed excavation at the Hathaway site revealed that there were no fewer than five temporal components at the mortuary locus of the site. Previous excavators, Warren Moorehead in 1912 and Wendell Hadlock and Theodore Stern in 1947 led those investigators to conclude that there was only a single component. Two of the components at Hathaway are assignable to the Late Archaic period, and parallel similar components at the Cow Point site in New Brunswick.
The Salt Pond Project was undertaken in 1968 with support from the University of Maine and the National Science Foundation.
