Did you know that salt water once lapped within a quarter mile of Schoodic and Sebois Lakes, which were 11,000 years ago, a huge glacially fed lake inundating modern Ebeeme, Schoodic, Sebois and Endless Lake? Or Milo Elementary School sits atop an ancient beach?
The purpose of this program is to explore with interested folks the recent findings that illuminate both facts and questions that research has established. Our program will include an illustrated presentation which will include prehistoric artifacts from our immediate area and what we can learn from them.
David is a former president of the Maine Archeological Society; he is adjunct faculty member at Central Maine Community College and the University of Maine at Farmington. He authored the book “Above the Gravel Bar”.
The guest speaker grew up in the town of Milo, Maine. As a paratrooper in the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division, he served a tour of duty in South Vietnam. A graduate of the University of Maine, Orono, with a Master’s degree in liberal studies, he chose to live in Maine and taught history at Winthrop High School, where he was chairman of the Social Studies Department.
