Jonathan Levitt: Mawooshen, life and landscape of the Maritime Archaic

Mawooshen documents the geography of the Red Paint People – Archaic humans of unknown origins that appeared among the islands and coastal mountains of Penobscot Bay five thousand years ago. They thrived for about twelve hundred years, and then suddenly disappeared. The Maritime Archaic refers to the wider North American archeological coastal and seafaring culture of the late Meso-Indian period along the coast of Newfoundland, the Canadian Maritimes and Maine.
