Archaeology program to take closer look at mill community

The Associated Press

CONCORD - A once-thriving 19th century mill community is a focus of this summer's archaeology field school program run by New Hampshire's Division of Historical Resources.

The Livermore Hollow in Holderness and Campton was the site of pulp mills, a tannery and a fish hatchery.

Today, soil and vegetation now cover most of the stone foundations that are left. A study done of the area in December takes inventory of what's there now.

State Archaeologist Richard Boisvert says the hollow is being used as a laboratory to show students how historic complexes are mapped and investigated. Another goal is to assist the state Parks Department, which wants to make improvements to the nearby Livermore Falls Recreation Area.

The field school takes place July 18-July 29.
