The Humphrey & Lucy Chadbourne Archaeology Project

One of the most imporant aspects of the Chadbourne project is that is provides students, teachers, Chadbournes, local historians, and just about everyone a chance to learn about the past. In keeping with that spirit, below are links to documents on the history of the site, and the South Berwick region in the seventeenth-century. The list will grow as time permits.
