Belfast's Hidden Prehistory

with Steve Hutchings


The mid-coast region of Maine has an incredible amount of archeological studies and excavations, perhaps more than any other place in the United States. Belfast is rarely mentioned and has no official Native American historic research, although its river's name may be translated as "fishing for sturgeons by torchlight". I have spent 6 years researching the history and collecting artifacts above the walking bridge. I will share that research and present one version of past native American activity along with related artifacts.

Steven Hutchings is a retired Math/Science Teacher from the Belfast area. For over 20 years he taught a Marine Studies course to Juniors and Seniors with a goal of understanding past history to predict future changes. One of his hobbies is the study of Maine Native American history with an emphasis on tools. He holds a B.S. in Marine Biology and a Masters in Science Education. The majority of his 40-year teaching career was spent at Belfast Area High School.
