from the January Chapter meeting - Strategy

a couple of chapter members sent regrets, Kristin do get well soon, and a few members made it out to the meeting.

We kicked around a lot of ideas, and reviewed the 2010 year and came up with the following points:

it was noted that during 2010 when outside the chapter speakers made presentation, attendance roughly tripled....

1. Champlain 2015 projects move from main part of meetings to subcommittee/work Group

2. open public monthly meetings will change to focus on outside archaeology speakers

3. some additional committee/workgroups will be formed


If you would like to help out or just find out more about the Champlain 2015 projects  get in touch with John Raynor or leave a comment on this post.

a different theory about the use of stone arrowheads

I have attached an interesting theory of the uses of what is commonly classified as stone arrow heads.
The 4 part series is discussed by an amateur archaeologist within the area of Maine USA
The article is documented on youtube and consists of 4 parts approximately 5 minutes in length, in part three there is mention of Champlain and the type of arrow heads used in 1605 in that area.
Below are the 4 parts in order:
There are others who may enjoy the article also, please pass it on as you may.
