Description

Anthropologist-archaeologist Michael Gramly headed a summer-long dig at Aziscohos Lake near the Maine-New Hampshire-Quebec border that uncovered some 15,000 stone artifacts. It was the highest altitude Paleo-Indian site in the Eastern United States.

The "Vail Site" was named for rockhound Francis Vail who discovered the site in 1970.
