Paleoindians: The ‘original affluent society' 11,000 years ago

Editor’s note: This is the first in what will be many twice-monthly columns to be written by Bill Haviland about the history of Indians on Deer Isle from the end of the ice age to the time of European settlement. We are delighted and proud to have Bill, with his vast experience and passion for history, chronicling Indian activity and seasonal settlement on the Island. Our intention is to publish this material to help Islanders and visitors alike understand and appreciate those who were here first.
